Title Assessing the Transmission of the H- Ion Beam on the Front End Test Stand
Abstract The front end test stand (FETS) is entering the next stage of construction and commissioning, with the three-solenoid magnetic low energy beam transport (LEBT) line being installed. A thorough characterization of the beam leaving the Penning H<sup>-</sup> ion source has been performed. This includes measurements of the beam current using toroids and of the transverse emittance using slit-slit scanners. These measurements are performed over a wide range of source discharge and extraction parameters in order to understand how the transmission may be improved. Comments on the quality of the beam to be injected into the FETS radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) are given.
