Abstract: 

Design and construction of a Penning Ion Generator (PIG) plasma source with an Einzel focusing lens and a testbed for fusion experiments was undertaken. The unloaded vacuum chamber achieved a clean vacuum with an ultimate pressure of 4x10⁻⁸ Torr and a background gas of CO and H₂O as measured by a Residual Gas Analyzer (RGA). The plasma source operated with both argon and nitrogen feed gasses and a maximum current of 2.9µA at an acceleration potential of approximately 5kV was achieved.
