The participants will gain practical knowledge about the ECR charge breeding technics. In this method, the implementation of two beam lines and two ion sources is necessary. During the training, the development methods used to design and improve the 1+ sources, the beam diagnostics (including the Allison type emittance meters), the beam optics devices and the Charge Breeder (CB) will be presented. The presentation will lean on the simulations used for the microwave, magnetic field and ion beam domains. The hands on training will also focus on the beam capture and the measurements done to qualify the process: efficiency measurement, charge breeding time, charge state distribution, deltaV curve for gaseous or alkali ions.
