  • Electrostatic End-Plugging of a Plasma in a Cusp-Shaped Magnetic Field Composed of a Magnet Array

    An end-loss of a plasma through a cusp-shaped magnetic field is experimentally investigated to be plugged by an electrostatic potential barrier. The main plasma is contained in a surface magnetic field whose one end is of cusp geometry. The potential barrier is set up near the cusp region by a production of another independent plasma whose space potential is controllable. The effects of the potent... View full abstract»

  • Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves in a Magneto-Plasma Filled Elliptical Coaxial Line with Lossy Waalls

    Electromagnetic wave propagation in a coaxial elliptical transmission line is investigated theoretically, the medium filling the space between the elliptical cylinders being a longitudinally magnetized plasma. Assuming an imperfect inner conductor throughout the treatment, exact numerical values for the complex propagation constant are determined through a special algorithmic process. Dispersion d...

    Low frequency wave heating experiments conducted on pulsed plasmas are often faced with the task of measuring low antenna resistance. This paper describes a method for monitoring the antenna-plasma Q during a plasma discharge. Knowledge of Q measured at low power can be helpful in the design of a high power antenna and its associated matching network. The concept of an effective Q is introduced an... View full abstract»

  • A Novel Laser Heterodyne Technique for the Measurement of Electron Density in Gas Discharges: Application to a TEA CO2 Laser Plasma

    We describe a novel intracavity laser heterodyne technique for the measurement of electron density in gas discharges. The method produces time-resolved data from a single pulse and we have used it to monitor electron densities in a TEA laser discharge with a typical CO2 laser gas mixture. Good agreement was found between the measured electron density and its value calculated from current density a... View full abstract»

    The method of Yasutomo et al. for asymmetrical Abel inversion is extended. The original solution consists of a radial part and a weight function, describing the degree of asymmetry. In this work, the radial part is generalized to an elliptical part by employing a coordinate transformation. A factor ¿ is introduced defining the ellipticity. The extended method is applied to continuum intensity mea... View full abstract»

    This paper briefly reviews anode phenomena in vacuum arcs, specially experimental work. It discusses, in succession, arc modes at the anode, anode temperature measurements, anode ions, transitions of the arc into various modes (principally the anode spot mode), and theoretical explanations of anode phenomena. The two most common anode modes in a vacuum arc are a low current mode where the anode is... View full abstract»

  • Instability Threshold for a Calutron (Isotope Separator) with Only One Isotope Species

    A calculation of the instability threshold for an isotope separator with only one isotope species yields a threshold comparable to that for several species. The beam interacts with a neutralizing cloud of electrons. As a side issue, a scaling law is derived that predicts that the beam particle density scales as the square of the magnetic field.
