Different ion species (rare gases, alkali, metallic) have been injected on the axis of the MINIMAFIOS - 10 GHz - Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Source which is the basics of the 1+ -> n+ method, special attention have been paid to the optics of the incoming beam for the validation of the 1+ -> n+ method for the SPIRAL project (Radioactive Ion Beam facility). The capture of the incoming ion beam by the ECR plasma depends, first, on the relative energy of the incoming ions with respect to the average ion energy in the plasma, and secondly, on the optics of the injection line.

The efficiency of the process when varying the potential V n+ of the MINIMAFIOS source with respect to the potential V 1+ applied to the 1+ source (DV=V n+ -V 1+ ) is an image of the energy dispersion of the 1+ beam. 1+ -> n+ spectra efficiencies, DV efficiency dependence for the most efficient charge state obtained, and measured primary beam emittances are given for the Ar, Rb, Pb, Cr. Highest efficiencies obtained are respectively Ar1+ -> Ar8+ : 8.7 %, Rb1+ -> Rb15+ : 5.5 %, Pb 1+ -> Pb 22+ : 4.8 % , Cr 1+ -> Cr 12+ : 3.5 %. Last results obtained are given for Sulfur and Uranium.
