Several diagnostic studies are planned for the H$^{-}$ Ion source at LANSCE. Studies related to the tungsten filament quality and lifetime, cesium saturation of the converter, and of the plasma in the ion source. Diagnostics will be done using thermal imaging and laser spectroscopy. These studies will help improve the quality performance of the H$^{-}$ ion source at LANSCE.
