Neutralization efficiency of H- beams based on measurements of one- and two-electron removal from H- in H- + Arq+ (q ≤ 8) collisions
Employing the Giessen ion-ion crossed-beams facility, absolute cross sections have been measured for single- and double-electron removal from H- in energetic collisions with Arq+ (q ≤8) ions. The data is compared to CTMC calculations and is discussed with respect to conversion efficencies of H- into H0 beams in plasma neutralizes proposed for efficient neutral beam heating of next generation fusion plasmas.
