Abstract:

An analysis of the plasmoids formed in a conical source was carried out with a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The microstructure of the plasmoids and the distribution of ions of different masses with respect to energy were studied in small areas of the clots. The mechanism for the acceleration of the particles is different for energies or 150 ev. and or 500 ev. In the latter case the formation of fast protons the formation of the fast particles may take place in the spark. Author
