This work presents the multiple diagnostics characterization of the plasma in an axis-symmetric simple mirror trap as a function of magnetic field profile (mirror ratios and magnetic field gradient), especially in the quasi-flat B field configuration that is typical of Microwave Discharge Ion Sources, and also of neutral gas pressure and microwave power. The simultaneous use of Optical Emission Spectroscopy, Langmuir Probe and X-ray diagnostics allows the characterization of the whole electron energy distribution function (EEDF), from a few eV to hundreds of keV .

Abstract

This work presents the multiple diagnostics characterization of the plasma in an axis-symmetric simple mirror trap as a function of magnetic field profile (mirror ratios and magnetic field gradient), especially in the quasi-flat B field configuration that is typical of Microwave Discharge Ion Sources, and also of neutral gas pressure and microwave power. The simultaneous use of Optical Emission Spectroscopy, Langmuir Probe and X-ray diagnostics allows the characterization of the whole electron energy distribution function (EEDF), from a few eV to hundreds of keV . Results show non-linear behaviour under small variations of even one source parameter and strong influence on EEDF of the Bmin/BECR ratio. Benefit and next developments will be highlighted.
