Abstract:

A synthesized cesium plasma was focused by the application of quadrupolar electric fields at frequencies of 141, 395 and 1000 mc. The force was found to decrease with increasing frequency and to increase with increasing applied electric fields. However, the force did not depend on the particle density. These results are in qualitative agreement with theory. Author
