The facility of the Michigan Ion Beam Laboratory at the University of Michigan has been upgraded to conduct high intensity radiation effects studies on materials. This upgrade is necessary to pursue higher radiation damage levels than the studies previously conducted. To achieve this capability a new volume ion source was installed which can produce several times more H−H− current than the previous duoplasmatron. We will describe the objectives of the research and the facility as well as applications to a variety of radiation damage problems. © 2001 American Institute of Physics
