Abstract : The possibility of using a powerful pulsed arc, originating during the transition from the Penning to the Keller type discharge, as a powerful pulsed ion source, was investigated. It was shown that at discharge currents of up to 200 a the extracted ion currents exceed 30 ma, and the density of the extracted ion current in the out let opening exceeds 4 a/sq cm. It was shown that the obtainment of reprodicible ion pulses of rectangular form and low modulation is possible. For the first time (in 1950) was established the growth of the proton content with the rise of the discharge current of the arc, reaching 85 to 90% under conditions of a metallic chamber. The device was used for pulsed entry of hydrogen. (Author)
