Voltage holding tests by using JT-60 negative ion source and small electrodes was carried out because JT-60 negative ion source had a critical problem about low voltage holding capability for long time. As a result, the voltage holding capability is decreased with the increase of area where local electric field is generated, as well as the surface area according to existing scaling low about surface area. Therefore, in order to improve the voltage holding without changing the existing accelerator, the voltage holding test was carried out by extending gap lengths of the negative ion source. In order to improve the voltage holding, beam radiation shield needs to be optimized additionally. As a result, the voltage holding has been improved to 500 kV and stabilized. By using this modified ion source, negative ion beams of 500 keV up to 3A has been successfully produced.
