The negative ion mean free path and its possible implications

The knowledge of the mean free path (mfp) of the negative ions is important for many purposes, e.g. evaluating the distance from which the ions can be extracted, or understanding the significance of experimental results. We will present the mfp for similar conditions in volume and caesium seeded sources. It appears that the mfp is longer in the caesium seeded source than in the volume source under identical conditions.
