Colutron Ion Beam Products are now being offered by Beam Imaging Solutions. Complete ion gun systems with controllers featuring either the standard Colutron filament ion sources or the new Beam Imaging Solutions RF ion source are available as an option. The standard Colutron ion gun type systems are now being offered in either a 10keV (standard Colutron) or 20 keV (improved) ion beam energy configuration.

Spare parts for both legacy Colutron quartz and boron nitride ion source or new ceramic type ion source are available.

New Product Releases

The new BOS-75-IW (75mm) Image Wedge is released to complement the existing BOS-18-IW (18mm) and BOS-40 (40mm) Image Wedges. The Image Wedges are typically used to observe a beam at 90 degrees using a mirror mounted at 45 degrees to the beam axis. The BOS-IW units can be pushed into and out of the beam line so that the spatial profile of the beam can then be viewed through a viewport at 90-degrees w.r.t the beam axis. The Image Wedge units are most useful for imaging applications inside the vacuum system when a fixed flange mount imager may not be suitable.

New Product Releases

The new model RFIS-100 ion source assembly is now available. The RFIS-100 is a RF ion source operating at 13.56 MHz. It is designed to be retrofittable to the standard Colutron® model G-1 and G-2 ion gun systems. Customers that do not already own a Colutron ion gun can purchase the new source to fit to their own ion accelerator systems. More information can be found at www.beamimaging.com/RFIS.html.
