- It is virtually certain that heavy ion beams will produce massive quantities of knock-on electrons for target chamber pressures above 1 torr. It was shown that the magnitude of the resulting current is more than sufficient to pinch the knock-on beam in most cases, assuming that a substantial fraction of this beam actually gets out ahead of the ion beam pulse. Although at least some of the ion beam experiences this defocusing, the overall effect on beam propagation is minimal if field reversal induced by the ion beam occurs near the beam head.
