Examines the relation between the distribution function of the ions confined in a tandem mirror and the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the end loss ions collected on a gridded energy analyzer. Representation of ion distribution in the loss cone by the decay parameter; Reproduction of the I-V curve from the model distribution.

    A multianode microchannel-plate (MCP) detector was operated in a transverse magnetic field. When a collimated ion beam of ∼4 mm diameter impinged on one area of the plate, ghost images were observed elsewhere on the plate at anodes up to several centimeters from the beam spot. This effect...

    This is a presentation of the results of a design study for an adjustable phase undulator. Earlier work described the basic theory of these undulators, whose magnetic fields are adjusted by moving the rows of magnets longitudinally with respect to each other, while keeping the gap fixed.
