Dr. Thomas Thuillier, LPSC


Particle sources. The course will review the different type of particle sources and their productions:


- electron-emission properties (thermal emission, field emission, photon induced emission), electron sources and positron source


- introduction to ion production and some basic concepts


- different kind of ion sources: proton/1+ -ion sources, H- -ion sources, sources for highly charged ions, radioactive ion beams
