This invention is a multipurpose and highly versatile plasma source that uses applied electric and magnetic fields to produce a spatially stratified population of hot and cold electrons. This unique feature can be used for a highly controllable source of a high flux of positive and negative ions and energetic neutral particles for use in the semiconductor industry, as well as for ion and neutral beams.
