Effect of radial plasma transport at the magnetic throat on axial ion beam formation

Zhang, Yunchao; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick


Correlation between radial plasma transport and formation of an axial ion beam has been investigated in a helicon plasma reactor implemented with a convergent-divergent magnetic nozzle. The plasma discharge is sustained under a high magnetic field mode and a low magnetic field mode for which the electron energy probability function, the plasma density, the plasma potential, and the electron temperature are measured at the magnetic throat, and the two field modes show different radial parametric...[Show more]
