Helicon wave propagation and plasma equilibrium in high-density hydrogen plasma in converging magnetic fields

Caneses Marin, Juan Francisco

Description

In this thesis, we investigate wave propagation and plasma equilibrium in MAGPIE, a helicon based linear plasma device constructed at the Australian National University, to study plasma-material interactions under divertor-relevant plasma conditions. We show that MAGPIE is capable of producing low temperature (1–8 eV) high density hydrogen plasma (2–3×10^19 m-3) with 20 kW of RF power when the confining magnetic field is converging. The original research...[Show more]
