Spatially resolved measurements of ion density, electron temperature, floating potential, and the electron
energy distribution function (EEDF) are presented for a magnetically focused plasma. The measurements
identify a central plasma column displaying Maxwellian EEDFs at an electron temperature of about 5 eV
indicating the presence of a significant fraction of electrons in the inelastic energy range (energies above
15 eV). It is observed that the EEDF remains Maxwellian along the axis of...[Show more]
