    The plasma over the racetrack in high power impulse magnetron sputtering develops in traveling ionization zones. Power densities can locally reach 109 W/m2, which is much higher than usually reported. Ionization zones move because ions are 'evacuated' by the electric field, exposing neutrals to...

    Some recently developed Hall thrusters utilize a magnetic field configuration in which the field lines penetrate the thruster walls at a high incidence angle. This so-called magnetic lens leads to an electric field pointing away from the walls, which is expected to reduce ion losses and improve...

    Multipactor is a vacuum discharge driven by secondary electron emission. Multiple period multipactors have long been known to exist but have been studied less extensively. In a period-n multipactor, electrons undergo multiple impacts in one rf period, with the synchronous phase alternating...

    The observation of strong multipactor loading of a cylindrical dielectric-loaded accelerator (DLA) structure with an alumina liner was previously reported. Conventional multipactor loading of dielectric rf windows is due to a tangential rf electric field and generally saturates at a few percent...
