RECRIS, the romanian 14 GHz ECR ion source, designed to be used as a facility for atomic physics and material studies with highly charged ion beams, have been recently completed. The general design [1], the main characteristics and the detailed measurements of the radial [2] and axial magnetic fields are presented. A maximum axial magnetic field of 1.4 T and a mirror ratio of up to 4 were obtained.

The dependence of the mirror ratio and of the ECR plasma zone volume on the configuration of the axial magnetic system configuration was studied. The first operation of this source is described, showing a good stability.
