Abstract : The paper discusses a plane model of an ion source with a neutral plasma component distributed along its length. It is shown that the recharging process, the intensity of which is determined by the physical properties of the gas (atomic weight, recharging and ionization section) and by the electron temperature, determines the value of the limit utilization factor of the mass.
