A novel laser stripping scheme based on sequential ex-citation has been proposed for foil-less charge-exchange injection of hydrogen ion (H-) beams. Our analysis indi-cates that the new scheme can save the laser power by an order of magnitude for certain particle beam energies. An application to 1.3-GeV hydrogen ion beams is described.
