Helicon Wave Propagation in Low Diverging Magnetic Fields.
This thesis details an experimental, theoretical, and numerical investigation into helicon wave propagation in the presence of low diverging magnetic fields (< 5 m T). Experiments are performed in the Piglet helicon reactor, which consists of a Pyrex source tube connected to a larger aluminium diffusion chamber. A double-saddle field antenna (operated at 13.56 MHz), is used to create both the plasma and launch helicon waves, while the diverging magnetic field is produced by a number of...[Show more]
