Ion beam sources for material processing in their working are no different from those required for space thrusters, ion implanters or for fusion experiments. They are scaled down versions of the devices earlier developed for space research. However, they are not being manufactured in the country. Their use in ophthalmic coatings and diamond like carbon for magnetic heads, CD, etc. are commercially attractive. In this paper a strategy is suggested as to how to develop them, pooling resources from different active groups in the country, with specific targets. Dc gridded, Rf gridded, Saddle field, End Hall, and ICP sources have been identified based on preliminary work carried out at different research institutions in the country. This review paper may be read more as a research opportunity report.
