Latest addition : 9 July.

Japet is a 2 MV Tandem Pelletron (6SDH-2, National Electrostatics Corp.) equipped with an external SNICS II ion source (cesium sputter source) which can deliver electronegative ions such as Cl, I, C, Si, V, Cu, Zr, Ag, Au… This system is capable to produce energies of 0.5 to 4.0 MeV for single-charged ions, up to 6 MeV for double-charged ions, and correspondingly higher energies for ions of higher charge states. The SNICS-II source is naturally very efficient for halogen ions: chlorine and iodine. Yields for Cu, Au and Al are excellent. Si ions are also abundant. Ni, Ti and Zr ion beams have a quite satisfactory flux, but hardly above 14 MeV, 10 MeV and 12 MeV respectively. Weaker V, Ag and Nb beams can also be produced.

Maximal intensities are for example 3.2 1014 pps for protons, 4.1012 pps for V+ to 2.2 1011 pps for V5+, 1.75 1012 pps for Au3+ to 3.75 1011 pps for Au6+.
