Power Supply for MPS-ECR Microwave Plasma Sources
The MPS-ECR PS is a high voltage power supply used to start a plasma in the MPS-ECR microwave plasma sources. It provides all necessary voltages for an atom source.
For the operation of ion and hybrid sources the MPS-GPS power supply is additionally required, where grid voltages can be applied. It supplies high voltages to the anode and extractor and allows to read the ion currents from these electrodes.
Optionally, MPS-IT control unit for atom sources can be supplied in order to deflect the ions.The optional ion trap consists of two electrodes on the front of the source. With a high voltage applied, positive and negative ions are attracted to the plates and thereby removed from the atom beam.
