Scope and Topics
The aim of the symposium is to exchange information on science, technology, engineering, and operational experiences in all areas relevant to negative ions by providing a forum for discussion. Contributions from a wide variety of fields, such as fusion, accelerators, material science or industrial applications are expected.
The main topics of the symposium are:
- Fundamental processes and modeling
- H- and D- sources for fusion, accelerators and other applications
- Other negative ion sources
- Beam formation and low energy transport
- Beam acceleration and neutralization
- Beam lines and facilities
