  Recent progress has been made at the newly commissioned Ion Source Test Facility (ISTF). Phase II, the final phase of the project, was completed in March 2016. First measurements were performed with D-Pace's TRIUMF licensed H ion source. The source was first characterized with H and an extraction study of the H ions was performed. A study of the production of heavy negative ions with volume cusp sources was started. Measurements with helium revealed no negative ions were extracted. Negative carbon ions were produced with acetylene. The beam composition has been analysed with a spectrometer.
