Abstract  Copper ion conducting solid electrolyte Rb$_{4}$Cu$_{16}$I$_{6.5}$Cl$_{13.5 }$ was prepared by means of mechano-chemical method. The structure and morphology of the powder was investigated by x-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The grain size was estimated to be 0.2-0.9 μm and the ionic conductivity at room temperature was approximately 0.206 S/cm. The solid electrolyte Rb$_{4}$Cu$_{16}$I$_{6.5}$Cl$_{13.5 }$ was exploited for copper ion beam generation. The copper ion emission current of several nA was successfully obtained at acceleration voltages of 15 kV and temperature of 197 $^\circ$C in vacuum of 2.1$\times10^{-4}$ Pa. A good linear correlation between the logarithmic ion current $(\log I)$ and the square root of the acceleration voltage ($U_{\rm acc}$) at high voltage range was obtained, suggesting the Schottky emission mechanism in the process of copper ion beam generation.
