25 Vary Discharge Current- 20 to 50 A Discharge CurrentDischarge Voltage Discharge PowerDischarge Impedance H - Beam Current

26 1. Increased Plasma Density Increased H + and Cs + bombardment sputters Cs from cathode surface. More H - are stripped on their way to the extraction region. Possible Explanation of Droop:

27 2. Electrode Surface Temperature Rise Transient 3D FEA calculations of electrode surface temperature Higher discharge currents ↓ Greater surface temperature rise during the pulse ↓ Surface Cs coverage pushed away from optimum Discharge Power

28 Vary Discharge Rep Rate

30 Lower repetition rate ↓ More time between pulses ↓ Longer time for Cs coverage to build up
