Low Pressure Plasmas in Magnetic Nozzles

Bennet, Alexander


This thesis details experiments of low pressure plasmas interacting with magnetic nozzles in two different plasma reactors. In the Chi Kung reactor, a radiofrequency (RF) plasma is created in the throat of the magnetic nozzle and is allowed to expand through the diverging field. Under the experimental conditions used in this thesis (0.3-0.7 mTorr argon, 145 Gauss peak axial magnetic field, 315 W RF power), a current-free double layer is measured on axis and its characteristics are explored with...[Show more]
