Abstract:

An experimental study has been undertaken to determine methods for producing a high-density plasma suitable for microwave applications. The Penning Ionization Gauge PIG discharge and lithium ion emission for plasma synthesis have been investigated. Langmuir probe measurements on the PIG were obtained under various conditions of anode current, magnetic field, gas pressure, and probe position. Radial and longitudinal profiles of electron density, electron temperature, and plasma potential were obtained. The lithium ion emission studies indicate the need for greater ion current densities than those presently achieved. Author
