Abstract:

An experimental test of generating ion flow under a complete charge non-neutral condition is proposed. On the experiment a quasi-neutral plasma is injected into a pure electron plasma which is confined in a Malmberg type trap. So far, the device named BX-U Beam Experiment Upgrade confines only electrons having density of 10exp 11-12 cu m for 0.3 s with Bz 50 G. After completing a plasma gun, the first series of a two-fluid plasma experiment will be initiated.
