UKNF Meeting, CR12, R68, RAL. 4th May 2005
The discharge length has been increased by improving cooling.
1.75 msec achieved so far.
70mA beam current
Increasing the beam aperture size gives H- currents up to 70 mA.
Increased aperture has little effect on beam emittance:

The phase 2 fast pulser now meets the spec. for rise time, fall time, pulse duration …
… and pulse droop

A full suite of diagnostics is being to maximise the experimental capabilities of the FETS.
In addition to the usual beam current and emittance measurements, more advanced techniques such as non-destructive laser/optical measurements and residual gas ion spectroscopy are being investigated.
