Negative hydrogen ion sources are used as injectors into accelerators and drive the neutral beam heating in ITER. Certain processes in low-temperature hydrogen plasmas are accompanied by the emission of vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) emission. Studying the VUV radiation, therefore, provides volumetric rates of plasma-chemical processes and plasma parameters. In the past, we have used gasdynamic ECR discharge for volumetric negative ion production and investigated the dependencies between the extracted H− current density and various ion source parameters. It was shown that it is possible to reach up to 80 mA/cm2 of negative ion current density with a two electrode extraction. We report experimental studies on negative hydrogen ion production in a high-density gasdynamic ECR discharge plasma consisting of two simple mirror traps together with the results of VUV emission measurements. The VUV-power was measured in three ranges—Lyα, Lyman band, and molecular continuum—varying the source control parameters near their optima for H− production. It was shown that the molecular continuum emission VUV power is the highest in the first chamber while Lyα emission prevails in the second one. Modifications for the experimental scheme for further optimization of negative hydrogen ion production are suggested. ...

Influence of axial mirror ratios on the kinetic instability threshold in electron cyclotron resonance ion source plasma Toivanen, V.; Bhaskar, B. S.; Koivisto, H.; Maunoury, L.; Tarvainen, O.; Thuillier, T. (American Institute of Physics, 2022)Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) ion source plasmas are prone to kinetic instabilities. The onset of the instabilities manifests as emission of microwaves, bursts of electrons expelled from the plasma volume, and the ...
