Title
(EN) Systems and methods for ion beam focusing
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods are provided for focusing a scanned ion beam in an ion implanter. A beam focusing system is provided, comprising first and second magnets providing corresponding magnetic fields that cooperatively provide a magnetic focusing field having a time-varying focusing field center generally corresponding to a time-varying beam position of a scanned ion beam along a scan direction. Methods are presented, comprising providing a focusing field having a focusing field center in the scan plane, and dynamically adjusting the focusing field such that the focusing field center is generally coincident with a time-varying beam position of the scanned ion beam along the scan direction.
