Abstract:

The purpose of this program is to evaluate the use of distributed charge exchange in a transmission-line type of inductive plasma accelerator. For this evaluation it is necessary to measure the flux and angular and energy distribution of the ions and neutrals that are accelerated and expelled from the transmission line. The emphasis of the program has been on the provision of a diagnostic system capable of rapidly performing the required measurements. The diagnostic system is in two main parts the detector section for use in study of the transmission line and the calibration section. The design, construction, testing, and calibration of both the detector and the calibration section are described. Author
