First half of ion revolution visually seen!

A very interesting observation was made during the operation of the cyclotron last December. With the presure high enough, recombination allowed us to see the early ion beam path of it's steep downward spiral (and loss). For detailed information, please read the Ion Source Studies - Part II: Simulations and measurements which talks about the latest ion source. The new ion source is also documented on the Ion Source - Part II (AKA Recent Ion Source) web page.
