Ion-atom collision experiments require, in many cases, accelerated light heavy ions of various charge states in the energy region of a few MeV. These types of beams can be produced using Penning ion sources combined with a charge state selector in the terminal of single ended Van de Graaff accelerators. We propose, in addition, the use of stripper targets in different locations in the beam transport system. In the present paper the experimental results obtained with pre-analyser and post-analyser strippers are presented and the performances of such systems are discussed.
