Non-local plasma generation in a magnetic nozzle
Axial plasma density measurements in a 1.5 m long plasma chamber are presented for when the regions of high magnetic field and radio frequency heating are progressively separated using a movable solenoid pair. The results show that the operating regime changes based on the degree of ion magnetisation under the antenna. When ions are magnetized, electrons heated under the antenna are efficiently transported to the solenoids along a column defined by the magnetic field lines which connect to the...[Show more]
