Detection of an electron beam in a high density plasma via an electrostatic probe

Stephen Majeski, Jongsoo Yoo, Stewart Zweben & Masaaki Yamada
An electron beam is detected by a 1D floating potential probe array in a relatively high density (10e12 − 10e13 cm−3) and low temperature (∼ 5 eV) plasma of the Magnetic Reconnection Experiment (MRX). Clear perturbations in the floating potential profile by the electron beam are observed. Based on the floating potential profile and a current balance equation to the probe array tips, the effective width of the electron beam is determined, from which we...
