A plasma source has been constructed for investigating plasma-surface interactions in a tokamak. It is a compact device with a total length less than 1 m, compared to other existing facilities in the world. However, it can provide with stable plasma beams of low energy ($$sim$$100 eV) and high flux ($$sim$$10$$^{22}$$ /m$$^{2}$$/s), close to the predicted edge plasma conditions near the ITER divertor. This report presents mainly its configuration and its characteristics, including influence of filament, arc discharge, magnetic field, bias voltage parameters, and so on, on plasma beam being delivered towards the sample. Also shown are the results of preliminary experiments of blister formation on tungsten samples irradiated by a deuterium plasma beam generated with the source.
