An asymmetric axial plasma potential gradient would be useful for creating an efficient unidirectional ion source. A weak inhomogeneous axial magnetic field has been employed to enforce such plasma density and potential gradients. An alternative technique has been studied by computational methods and involves a differential vacuum pumping which introduces a strong axial dependence into the electron-gas ionization rate.
