  A RF driven plasma exciter for producing negative ions, aiming for heating and current drive neutral beam injectors for fusion applications, is in developing in Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST). In order to couple the maximum RF power to the source, the matching unit is designed to match the impedance of the source to that of the RF coaxial line. Firstly, a FEM model was built to estimate the equivalent circuit parameters of the source. Numerical predictions were compared with a small experimental setup to verify the accuracy of the fem model. Based on the numerical results, the RF coil and the matching components were carefully designed. Finally, the matching circuit for the source is developed and tested. Experimental results will be presented in the full paper.

  Huazhong University of Science and Technology has been carrying out R&D of compact low energy accelerators by integrating industry, teaching and research to promote local economic development supported by both national and provincial government and local enterprises. Currently, the projects include: compact medical cyclotron, electron irradiation accelerators, etc. The industry of non-power nuclear energy based on low energy particle accelerator has also drawn attention from the provincial government of Hubei and municipal government of Xianning. Meanwhile, a series of lectures about nuclear science and nuclear safety were hosted to help the public better understand nuclear technology and to wipe out fears of nuclear energy. At the moment, the application of non-power nuclear energy with based on compact low energy accelerator is developing into an industry chain in the area of central China.
