For the development of H+ and H0 beams a new method was developed based on the expansion of a cascade arc plasma. A partial aim was to develop an intense beam of at. hydrogen. The result was a 100 A equiv. hydrogen atom beam with an energy conversion efficiency of typically 30-40%. The resulting hydrogen plasma was also used to do preliminary expts. on restoration treatment of archeol. artifacts according to the method of S. Veprek, et al. The present high d. atom rich plasma beam with
