An overview of the studies of physics and technology of ion and neutral beams carried out at the Bunker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB
RAS since 1960 till now is presented. These studies were initiated by Academician G.I. Budker for the charge-exchange injection of
particles into storage rings. Subsequently, many ion sources and natural beams were developed and studied for applications in
accelerators and plasma devices for plasma heating and diagnostics.
