Structure of ECR Mirror Plasma(Welding Physics, Process & Instrument)
Search this Article
Structure of an ECR plasma in a simple mirror field were studied experimentally. From the measurement of cold plasma parameters it was found that the plasma was efficiently confined between the two resonance zones in the axial direction, when the gas pressure was low enough to produce sufficient hot electrons. While in the measurement of the radial distribution of soft X-ray emission, it was verified that also the 2nd harmonic resonance zones contributed to the production of hot electrons as well as the fundamental ones.
