Term (Index) Definition
single charge ion  atom ionized to a single charge level, i.e. atom deprived of one electron only; e.g. Ar1+.
ion multicharged, MCI  an ion featuring ion charge q>1; e.g. Ar8+; high power, very high frequency generators are needed to ionize gas to ion charge >1; decelerated multicharged ions feature potential energy orders of magnitude higher than their kinetic energy; capable of interacting with solid surfaces at ultra-low velocities; in contrast to non-selective interactions of single charge ions the multicharged ions interact differently with insulator and conductors
