Abstract

The ECLISSE experiment proved in 2002 the possibility to couple a Laser Ion Source (LIS) with an Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Source (ECRIS) in order to obtain ion beams from refractory metals with a cw beam structure. The use of a LIS inside the ECRIS plasma chamber may permit to increase the beam current and the ion charge state. The use of 3rd generation ECRIS may extend the capabilities of this method, as the denser plasma may catch the ions extracted from the LIS with energies up to about 1 keV per charge state, much higher than it is possible for sources operating at lower frequency, as it was verified with the SERSE source. The perspectives opened by the availability of the MS-ECRIS source operating at 28 GHz will be described along with some details on the proposed experiments, to be carried out in 2008.
