Performance of two helium ion diodes

Published Web Location Commons 'BY' version 4.0 license

Two magnetically insulated gas-puff diodes were tested. In one design the plasma source was a fast inductive coil; in the other a coaxial gun created the plasma. The plasma current density from both sources, as well as the accelerated beam from each, was comparable to the Child-Langmuir limit of ∼10 A/cm 2.
