Principle of the
Alternating Cold Cathode Plasma Sources
In contrary to a hot cathode plasma the ACC-Ion Sources generates the ion source plasma without a hot and plasmachemically unstable filament by a magnetic field induced cold cathode discharge at nearly 50 kHz using the patented arrangement of two so called "Alternating Cathodes".
The ion beam is extracted by a two grid graphite extraction system. A filament neutralizer can be used to neutralise the ion beam.
