Selective radial release of hot, magnetised electrons downstream of a low-pressure expanding plasma

Bennet, Alexander; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick


A thorough understanding of particle transport in expanding plasma devices under different geometric and magnetic configurations is necessary for future thruster and reactor design. Recently, we have shown that the development of high density conics via hot electron transport along the most radial field lines escaping the source region of an expanding plasma device is crucial for the development of a high velocity ion beam on axis. In this study, a gap between the source region and a movable...[Show more]
