Abstract:

We have developed a theoretical analysis of the current scaling issues of a negatively biased probe in a plasma wake. The theoretical assumptions have been analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively by the use of the POLAR computer code. For a plasma with a constant beam energy, the analysis shows that the I-V collection characteristics are unaffected by Mach number variations for Mach numbers above the value of two. For the same case, the current was found to scale with the 37 power of the density.
