on Ion Sources
September 20 - 24, 2021 Online format
Thank you for attending ICIS2021!
Please take a moment to complete our survey. Your input will help us plan future TRIUMF conferences.
The ICIS’21 is the 19th event in a biennial series of conferences that are dedicated to Ion Sources and their applications. Recent conferences in this series have been held in Lanzhou (2019), Geneva (2017), New York, USA (2015), Chiba, Japan (2013), and Giardini Naxos, Italy (2011). The 19th ICIS was supposed to be held from September 19-24, 2021 in Victoria, BC, Canada, hosted by TRIUMF, Canada’s Particle Accelerator Laboratory. The International Advisory Committee (IAC) of ICIS’21 had to make the difficult decision to postpone the next in-person conference to 2023 and a smaller fully virtual conference hosted will be held this year, September 20-24.
Whilst details are still being developed and finalised, TRIUMF will host a Zoom-based multi-day program over the same original dates. For poster sessions and the coffee breaks, we will create a virtual space in Gathertown to meet and discuss. The scientific program of the virtual ICIS'21 will offer plenary sessions of invited and contributed oral presentations and two Poster sessions will be arranged as well. The scientific program will cover themes of the ion sources science and technology that are relevant to the production of ion beams for scientific research and for applications. ICIS traditionally addresses
Fundamental processes in ion sources, plasma
Production of high intensity ion beams
Production of highly charged ion beams
Negative ion sources
Ion sources for fusion
Polarized ion sources
Radioactive ion sources and charge breeders
Beam formation, extraction, transport, and diagnostics
Applications of ion sources
Key technologies for ion sources
The host TRIUMF employs a unique accelerator complex, that comprises high intensity driver beams for secondary particle production and a world class rare isotope facility - ISAC. TRIUMF operates high intensity H- sources, several stable beam sources, and target ion sources for rare isotope beam production. Three charge state breeders, an operational ECRIS based charge state booster (CSB) and two EBIS based charge state breeder provided by the CANREB project and an operational device, developed for the TITAN facility, complete the ion source infrastructure.
We look forward to welcome you ‘virtually’ in September 2021,
Associate Laboratory Director - Accelerator Division, TRIUMF
Chair of ICIS’21
