- Publish Date: 1988-04-29
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: A. Theodore Forrester
A compilation and analysis of discussions of phenomena important to ion beams and high perveance ion beams. Discusses physics essential to research on ion beam generation and propagation and provides some requisite background to understanding the criteria for designing electrodes. Ion sources are categorized in terms of their configurations, and the relationships between various types of sources is developed. Covers collisionless space charge phenomena, collisionless plasmas, collisional effects and the taxonomy of high poissance beams. Chapters also treat the field of intense negative ion beams.
