Ion sources:

In the JYFL accelerator laboratory we have three ion sources feeding the K130 cyclotron. Two of them are Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources (ECRIS) for heavy ions: JYFL 6.4 GHz ECRIS and JYFL 14 GHz ECRIS. The third is a filament-driven multi cusp type H- light ion source LIISA. The ECR ion sources are used for production of highly charged ion beams for nuclear and material physics experiments. LIISA is used for producing intensive proton beams for nuclear physics experiments and medical isotope production.
