1. A source of multiple charged heavy ions which uses microwave power to increase electron energy to extremely high levels in two magnetic-mirror confinement chambers connected in a series.
2. An electrode supplying current of charged heavy ions that uses microwave power to heat electrons to energies of tens of kilovolts in two magnetic mirror confinement chambers in a series.

Ions formed in the first chamber drift into the second chamber, where they become charged.
