Operation status of the J-PARC ion source

A J-PARC ion source driven with a LaB6 filament is being operated without any serious trouble since the restoration from the earthquake. The H$$^{-}$$ ion current from the source is routinely restricted 19 mA for the filament lifetime. In order to increase the beam power at the linac beam operation, the beam current from the ion source was increased to 22 mA. At this operation, the filament lifetime was estimated by the reduction in the filament current. According to the steep reduction in the filament current, the break of the filament was predicted. Although the filament has broken after 10 h from the steep current reduction, the beam operation was restarted 8 h later by the preparation for the exchange of new filament. At the study time for the 3 GeV synchrotron, the ion source was operated at 30 mA for 8 days.
