    An ion beam is generated by extracting ions from a dc discharge plasma and injecting them into a plasma produced independently of the beam source. Thus, an ion beam–plasma system is produced in which the beam parameters vary independently from those of the plasma. It is confirmed by using...

    When an ion beam is propagated through a plasma, the question of charge neutralization is critical to its propagation. This paper considers such a problem where the plasma is magnetized with the magnetic field perpendicular to the beam. The plasma-number density and beamnumber density are...
