  • Doubly‐Charged Xe Ions Evidenced by Time Resolved RPA Measurement in
           the Far Field Plume of a Low‐Power HET
    • Authors: T. Gibert; L. Balika, F. Diop, A. Bouchoule
      Abstract: A low power Hall Effect Thruster (HET), based on a permanent magnet circuit, was investigated in the GREMI laboratory facility. The thruster operated in the working range between 50 and 300 W and the previously measured thrust is between 4 and 16 mN for an anodic efficiency respectively between 15% and 27%. The pulsed character of the thruster current is an important feature of this HET. The ion current's bursts are recorded at 30 and 70 cm from the exit plane in the thruster plume and are time‐resolved, which lead to a preliminary analysis of the time of flight (TOF) phenomena. This paper presents a detailed study of these bursts of ion current in the plume. The total ion current is shown to be a superposition of 2 distinct contributions of charged species. In complement, a controlled single current interruption in stable anodic current condition leads to exactly the same features than in oscillating mode. This crucial verification garantees the validity of the time of flight origine of the two distinct contributions. Then, the slower one is the more intense and is proportional to the ion Xe+ current whereas the faster one could be attributed either to doubly‐charged Xe++ or to superfast Xe+. The work presents a way to determine unambiguously the nature of the fast contribution by recording the Retardated Potential Analyser (RPA) signals at various repelling grid potentials with respect to time. The energy distribution of the 2 wellseparated contributions are reconstructed and confirms the contribution of doubly‐charged xenon ions (Xe++) in the plume. This way of RPA collecting data and interpretation presents the main advantage tobe an easy way for the identification of the nature of the charged species in the plume.

  • On the Theory of Hydrogen Atom Ionization by Ultra‐Short
           Electromagnetic Pulses
    • Authors: V. A. Astapenko; V. S. Lisitsa
      Abstract: An investigation of the probability of hydrogen atom ionization by ultra‐short electromagnetic pulses is carried out in the frame of perturbation theory We consider the case when the electric field strength amplitude E0 in a pulse by two orders lower than characteristic atomic field strength Ea (Ea ≅ 5.1 · 109 V/cm). A detailed investigation of the dependence of the probabilities on the pulse duration was performed for Gaussian pulse shapes. In the case where the carrier frequency of the Gaussian pulse is larger than the atomic ionization potential, the probability goes to the standard limit of perturbation per unit time. At the same pulse durations, the probabilities for carrier frequencies less than the ionization potential go to zero. The frequency dependence of the ionization probability becomes equal to the standard threshold dependence with increasing pulse duration time. A comparison between the ionization effects caused by wavelet pulses without carrier frequency and Gaussian pulses with carrier frequency shows that the same ionization probability values are achieved when the pulse carrier frequency is detuned by about 20% from the ionization threshold.

  • Faraday Rotation of Overdense Magnetized Plasma
    • Authors: L. Rajaei; S. Miraboutalebi, M. Nejati
      Abstract: In this study, we investigate Faraday rotation of electromagnetic waves that are anomalously transmitted through an over‐dense magnetized plasma layer. Here, magnetized plasma indicates that the plasma layer is immersed in a uniform magnetic field. Firstly, normally opaque over‐dense magnetized plasma is shown to be transparent to obliquely incident electromagnetic waves. This high transparency can be achieved by providing conditions for resonant excitations of plasmonic modes. The resonant characteristics of the transmission coefficient of the considered structure are determined and discussed. The conditions under which the magnetized plasma behaves as a complete reflector are also obtained. Faraday rotation is shown to be enhanced under high transparency conditions. The reflected wave also exhibits Faraday rotation and is enhanced under total reflection conditions. (© 2015 WILEY‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)

  • On the Conductance of the Gas Discharge Plasma at Space Anisotropic
    • Authors: D. Zhechev; V. Steflekova, J. T. Costello, N. Bundaleska
      Abstract: The galvanic manifestation of two transformations of degenerate magnetic states of the neon atom, namely self‐alignment → non‐alignment and alignment ↔ orientation is studied by monitoring the voltage across the discharge in a range of hollow cathode discharge (HCD) lamps. The application of a magnetic field to the discharge disorders the self‐alignment. Alignment and orientation are optically induced and their effect on the discharge conductance is compared by measuring the optogalvanic signals. The degenerate states investigated are found to contribute to the gas discharge conductance in a manner which depends on their degree of coherence. Various hollow cathode discharge media are studied including Ne/As, Ne/Cu, Ne/Ni, Ne/Cd, Ne/Li and Ne/Ca in the corresponding trademarked HCD spectral lamps. (© 2015 WILEY‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

  • Planar and Nonplanar Shock Waves in a Degenerate Quantum Plasma
    • Authors: S. A. Ema; M. R. Hossen, A. A. Mamun
      Abstract: The nonlinear propagation of modified electron‐acoustic (mEA) shock waves in an unmagnetized, collisionless, relativistic, degenerate quantum plasma (containing non‐relativistic degenerate inertial cold electrons, both nonrelativistic and ultra‐relativistic degenerate hot electron and inertial positron fluids, and positively charged static ions) has been investigated theoretically. The well‐known Burgers type equation has been derived for both planar and nonplanar geometry by employing the reductive perturbation method. The shock wave solution has also been obtained and numerically analyzed. It has been observed that the mEA shock waves are significantly modified due to the effects of degenerate pressure and other plasma parameters arised in this investigation. The properties of planar Burgers shocks are quite different from those of nonplanar Burgers shocks. The basic features and the underlying physics of shock waves, which are relevant to some astrophysical compact objects (viz. non‐rotating white dwarfs, neutron stars, etc.), are briefly discussed.

  • Fluid Simulation of a Cusped Field Thruster
    • Authors: H. Liu; H. Wu, Y. Meng, S. Yang, J. Zhang, D. Yu
      Abstract: The cusped field thruster is a kind of newly developed electric propulsion device. The electric field at the channel exit and the low frequency oscillation were measured by former experiments. While the formation mechanism of them have not been fully interpreted yet. Through studying two distinguishing typical electron paths in the thrusters, a fluid model is built up along two electron paths, and then the model is completed by synthetically analyzing the effect of two electron paths. Time‐averaged electric potential distribution, anode current oscillation curve and time‐synchronized atom density and ion density distribution are obtained by simulation.

  • Second Harmonic Generation of Self Focused Cosh‐Gaussian Laser Beam
           in Collisionless Plasma
    • Authors: A. Singh; N. Gupta
      Abstract: This paper presents an investigation of self‐focusing of a Cosh‐Gaussian (ChG) laser beam and its effect on second harmonic generation in collisionless plasma. In the presence of ChG laser beam the carriers get redistributed from high field region to low field region on account of ponderomotive force as a result of which a transverse density gradient is produced in the plasma which in turn generates an electron‐plasma wave at pump frequency. Generated plasma wave interacts with the incident laser beam and hence generates its second harmonics. Moment theory has been used to derive differential equation governing the evolution of spot size of ChG laser beam propagating through collisionless plasma. The differential equation so obtained has been solved numerically. The effect of decentered parameter, intensity of ChG laser beam and density of plasma on self‐focusing of the laser beam and second harmonic yield has been investigated.
