Based on an ergodic magnetic limiter experiment, a new physical mechanism of cross-field transport in the scrape-off layer with an applied helical magnetic field is examined, taking the effect of the edge electric field into account.

    The analysis of plasma beam and shear problems in magnetic fields is usually based on a hydromagnetic fluid model. In a low-density collisionless plasma, however, the kinetic effects of the plasma, such as finite Larmor radius effects, are not yet clearly understood. In this paper, the kinetic...

    A magnetic filter was inserted between the cathodic arc plasma source and chamber to reduce the amount of macroparticles transmitted from the plasma to the sample. The plasma output of the magnetic filter was determined as a function of magnetic field and bias voltage, for the cases when the...
