Acknowledged as the "founding father" of and world renowned expert on electron cyclotron resonance sources Richard Geller has produced a unique book devoted to the physics and technicalities of electron cyclotron resonance sources. Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources and ECR Plasmas provides a primer on electron cyclotron phenomena in ion sources as well as being a reference to the field of ion source developments. Coverage includes elements of plasma physics, specific electron cyclotron resonance physics, and the relevant technology directed at both scientists and engineers.
Contents. Part 1: General Aspects of Electron Cyclotron Resonance Plasmas. Part 2: Specific Aspects of Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources. Part 3: Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources for Single or Low Charged Ions. Part 4: Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources for Multiply Charged Ions. Conclusions. Appendices. Index.
"It is highly recommended to newcomers in this field, as well as to experts."
