The Role of Magnets

The Role of Magnets

The figure shows the cross section of the ion source with no magnets. Electrons from the filament tend to diverge. When a magnetic field exists, electrons will fly along the magnetic flux. In other words, magnets installed in the ion source increase the number of electrons entering into the ion source and enhance the efficiency of ionization.
