A beam current adjuster for an ion implanter includes a variable aperture device which is disposed at an ion beam focus point or a vicinity thereof. The variable aperture device is configured to adjust an ion beam width in a direction perpendicular to an ion beam focusing direction at the focus point in order to control an implanting beam current. The variable aperture device may be disposed immediately downstream of a mass analysis slit. The beam current adjuster may be provided with a high energy ion implanter including a high energy multistage linear acceleration unit.

A final energy filter includes a first adjustment electrode portion, an intermediate electrode portion, and a second adjustment electrode portion. The final energy filter further includes a power supply unit. The power supply unit is configured such that it applies the voltages separately to the first adjustment electrode portion, the intermediate electrode portion, and the second adjustment electrode portion. The power supply unit applies voltages to an upstream auxiliary electrode portion, a deflection electrode portion and a downstream auxiliary electrode portion, respectively, such that the energy range of ion beam in a first region between the upstream auxiliary electrode portion and the deflection electrode portion is approximately equal to that in a second region between the deflection electrode portion and the downstream auxiliary electrode portion.

A beam collimator includes a plurality of lens units that are arranged along a reference trajectory so that a beam collimated to the reference trajectory comes out from an exit of the beam collimator. Each of the plurality of lens units forms a bow-shaped curved gap and is formed such that an angle of a beam traveling direction with respect to the reference trajectory is changed by an electric field generated in the bow-shaped curved gap. A vacant space is provided between one lens unit of the plurality of lens units and a lens unit that is adjacent to the lens unit. The vacant space is directed in a transverse direction of the collimated beam in a cross section that is perpendicular to the reference trajectory. An inner field containing the reference trajectory is connected to an outer field of the plurality of lens units through the vacant space.
