MYRRHA is the very first prototype of a nuclear reactor driven by a particle accelerator in the world. An Isotope Separation OnLine (ISOL) capability is planned at the facility. A key step is the efficient but selective ionization and extraction of the desired element in the ion source. SCK•CEN is collaborating with research partners on ion source development, and will present its first steps towards a realistic model using the VSim particle-in-cell code.
