The crossfield current-driven ion acoustic instability in a two-ion plasma.
The behaviour of the crossfield current-driven ion acoustic instability in a plasma containing two ion species is theoretically examined. In our model the electrons are assumed to be hot and the ions cold, i.e. Tₑ »Tᵢ (~ ...
A study of plasma source ion implantation.
The work described in this thesis is an analysis of the Plasma Source Ion Implantation (PSII) process. A metal target is placed within a plasma, and pulsed to a high negative potential (10 - 50 kV). The electrons in the ...
A study of the interaction of strong electromagnetic waves and anisotropic ion beams with a background plasma.
The interaction of an anisotropic (in velocity space) ion beam with an isotropic background hydrogen plasma is theoretically investigated. The length and time scales are such that both the ions and electrons are magnetized. ...
