The velocity relaxation of an H0 beam injected into high-temperature plasma is analyzed by deriving a Fokker-Planck-type equation. The diffusion rate in the velocity space of an H0 particle is directly proportional to the plasma temperature. Thus the effective energy relaxation of the H0 beam in the high-temperature plasma would be expected. It is shown that the Fokker-Planck-type equation satisfies the Boltzmann H theorem in the absence of particle loss. The constant of time decay of the beam density due to ionization with plasma ions, the thermalizing effect, and a method of possible analysis of trapped ions are also discussed
