    The Landau problem in relativistic plasma is considered in detail. It is shown how all modes in the plasma arise through proper treatment of the inverse Laplace transforms without imposition of any external conditions. A correct derivation of the asymptotic behavior of the electric field is included and estimates of the contribution of more rapidly decaying Landau modes are made analytically and a...

    The performance of a feedback controlled electrostatic energy analyzer has been investigated for use as the basic detection mechanism in an ion beam probe plasma diagnostic system. This system provides the only direct, spatially resolved measurement of plasma space potential. The principles involved in analyzer operation are presented, leading to an analyzer system with a design entrance angle of ... View full abstract»

    The ratio of diffusion coefficient to mobility (D/¿) for electrons has been measured in SF6-air and freon-nitrogen mixtures for various concentrations of SF6 and freon in the mixtures over the range 140¿ E/p¿ 220 V.cm-1 - torr-1. In SF6-air mixtures, the values of D/¿ were always observed to lie intermediate between the values for the pure gases. However, in freon-nitrogen mixtures, with a sma... View full abstract»

    Fusion research experiments require high energy short duration pulses. A homopolar machine, as an inertial energy storage system, offers an attractive source of energy meeting these requirements. The Energy Storage Group at The University of Texas at Austin has investigated the fundamental limitations to the discharge time of homopolar machines of various topological configurations. This paper pre... View full abstract»

    Intense relativistic electron beams have been injected into the plasma of a Z pinch at various times during the formation of the plasma column. If the diameter of the plasma column exceeded a certain value, these beams were found to propagate with a high transport efficiency when injected either into the collapsing current sheet of the Z pinch or into the expanding plasma column after its diameter...

  • Production of Ions by Repetitive Breakdown of a Vacuum Gap

    Zinc ion pulses with varying amplitudes up to 1 mA have been extracted from a vacuum discharge. Repetitive operation of the pulsed discharge at 5300 Hz was maintained for 24 min. Breakdown of the 0.4 mm vacuum gap was accomplished by ramp-charging a 270 pF capacitor connected across the gap until breakdown occurred, the capacitor then being discharged through the gap. Stable operation was maintain... View full abstract»
