Three methods of reducing the recovery time of the magnetically confined plasma duplexer are investigated. One method, the use of a plasma tuned cavity, is partially successful, but is too complicated to be practical. A second method using d.c. sweeping electric fields is unsuccessful. A third method, using thin dielectric fibers to reduce the average ambipolar diffusion distance in the plasma is a satisfactory compromise solution to the problem of achieving an acceptable recovery time and having a very effective confining magnetic field.
