Ion and electron sheath characteristics in a low electron temperature (Te ∼ 0.25–0.40 eV) and density (ne ∼ 106–107 cm−3) plasma are described. The plasma is produced in the experimental volume through diffusion from a hot cathode discharge plasma source by using a magnetic filter. The electron energy distribution function in the experimental plasma volume is measured to be a narrow Maxwellian distribution indicating the absence of primary and energetic electrons which are decoupled in the… CONTINUE READING
