Emissive probe and ion energy analyzer diagnostics have been used to deduce the effect of electric field scale size on ion temperature in space simulation of ion heating in a large vacuum chamber. Results suggest an increase in ion temperature as a function of electric field scale size but a limit proportional to mean free path.
