Neutral Beam Propagation through the Atmosphere.
Final technical rept. 1 Jun 84-1 Jun 87,
BOSTON COLL CHESTNUT HILL MA DEPT OF PHYSICS
Pagination or Media Count:
The problem of Beam Induced Stripping BIS process, occuring when a neutral beam propagates through the Earths atmosphere, has been analyzed. At high current densities the process is important and leads to a rapid disintegration of the beam. At lower current densities currently contemplated for experiments, the effect is probably not significant.
