First plasma of the A-PHOENIX electron cyclotron resonance ion source

Abstract : A-PHOENIX is a new compact hybrid electron cyclotron resonance ion source (ECRIS) using a large permanent magnet hexapole (1.92 Tesla at the magnet surface) and High Temperature Superconducting Solenoids (3 Tesla) to make min-|B| structure suitable for 28 GHz CW operation. The final assembly of the source was achieved at the end of june 2007. The first plasma of A-PHOENIX at 18 GHz was done on August the 16th 2007. The technological specificities of A-PHOENIX are presented. The large hexapole builded is presented and experimental magnetic measurements show that it is nominal with respect to simulation. A fake plasma chamber prototype including thin iron inserts showed that the predicted radial magnetic confinement can be fulfilled up to 2.15 Tesla at the plasma chamber wall. Planning of experiments scheduled until end 2008 is presented.
