STATUS OF THE RIKEN ECRISK. HATANAKA and H. NONAKA
RIKEN, Wako-shi, Saitama 351-01, Japan
An ECR ion source for an AVF-ring cyclotron complex has been constructed at RIKEN. The source is used to produce highly-charged ions for relatively light heavy elements (up to Ca). The first beam from the source was obtained on April 13, 1988. The source has been operated with gaseous elements since then. Through further half a year development, the beam from the source will be axially injected into the AVF cyclotron. The design and the construction of the ion source and the preliminary results are described.
