Status of the light ion source developments at CEA/Saclay

Abstract : SILHI (High Intensity Light Ion Source) is an ECR ion source producing high intensity proton or deuteron beams at 95 keV. It is now installed in the IPHI site building, on the CEA/Saclay center. IPHI is a front end demonstrator of high power accelerator. The source regularly delivers more than 130 mA protons in CW mode and already produced more than 170 mA deuterons in pulsed mode at nominal energy. The last beam characterisations, including emittance measurements, space charge compensation analysis and diagnostic improvements, will be reported. Taking into account the SILHI experience, new developments are in progress to build and test a 5 mA deuteron source working in CW mode. This new source will also operate at 2.45 GHz and permanent magnets will provide the magnetic configuration. This source, of which the design will be discussed, will have to fit in with the SPIRAL 2 accelerator developed at GANIL to produce Radioactive Ion Beams. The H- test stand status is briefly presented here and detailed in companion papers. This work is partly supported by the European Commission under contract n°: HPRI-CT-2001-50021.
