Plasma parameters and electron energy distribution functions in a magnetically focused plasma

Samuell, C. M.; Blackwell, B. D.; Howard, J.; Corr, C. S.


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]
