Abstract

The paper describes high broad metal ion source based on DC macroparticle filtered vacuum arc plasma generation with the DC and repetitively pulsed ion-beam extraction. This ion source can produce the metal ion beams of 0.60 m length with pulsed ion beam current up to 1.5 A at repetitively pulsed accelerating voltage of 20-40 kV and 0.2 A at 40 kV DC accelerating voltage. Results of the study of ion emission properties of high broad vacuum - arc evaporator are presented. The influence of magnetic field strength near the cathode surface on the arc spot movement and ionemission properties of vacuum-arc discharge for different cathode materials are investigated. It was shown that vacuum-arc discharge stability can be reached when the magnetic field strength ranges from 40 to 70 G on the cathode surface.
