Images from a particle-in-cell (PIC) simulation of ion flow through a hole in contact with plasma are presented. When the hole size is comparable to or larger than the plasma sheath thickness, the emanating ion beam is strongly divergent. In the opposite extreme of small hole size, a collimated ion beam may be extracted.
