New article on our compact source for bunches of singly charged atomic ions is now online

The ion source is based on atomic evaporation from an electrically heated oven and ionization by electron impact from a heated filament inside a grid-based ionization volume. The article shows the setup and the characterization of the compact ion source for low-energy bunches of singly charged atomic ions in a vacuum beam line as well as experimental results on the creation of low-energy ion bunches of up to 106 Mg+ ions.
