Magnetic Ion Beam Deflection in the Helicon Double-Layer Thruster
Transverse magnetic fields (along the x-axis, transverse to the z-axis) are applied to a helicon double-layer plasma to investigate the effect on the ion beam accelerated in the electric field of the double-layer. The 250 W radio frequency argon plasma is operated at a pressure of 0.04 Pa in a diverging magnetic field with a maximum of ∼140 G along the primary axis (z-axis). The diverging magnetic field is produced by two primary solenoids aligned coaxially along the z-axis. Introducing an...[Show more]
