The charge composition of an ion beam from an E-Mevva source is calculated within a model of sequential electron ionization of ions in a vacuum arc plasma. The effect of the plasma initial parameters on the charge composition of the ion beam is studied. Possible charge compositions for more than 30 elements omitted from this article are estimated. Also, the charge composition of the ions is calculated for the ultimate current density of the electron beam.
