Study of beam optics and beam halo by integrated modeling of negative ion beams from plasma meniscus formation to beam acceleration

Miyamoto, Kenji*; Okuda, Shin*; Hatayama, Akiyoshi*; Hanada, Masaya; Kojima, Atsushi

To understand the physical mechanism of the beam halo formation in negative ion beams, a two-dimensional particle-in-cell code for simulating the trajectories of negative ions created via surface production has been developed. The simulation code reproduces a beam halo observed in an actual negative ion beam. The negative ions extracted from the periphery of the plasma meniscus (an electro-static lens in a source plasma) are over-focused in the extractor due to large curvature of the meniscus.
