For the design and construction details of ion guns, necessary for more advanced designs and lower vacuums.

Hi,
the tube is becoming cleaner because of beeing evacuated for some days and the flashover rate is decreasing substantially . So the accelerating voltage can be hold a 90 kV and I get rather hot samples. The two shortlife isotopes of silver are nicely seen.

Super nice work! Could you provide details (including components) for the high voltage system?
