“Method for Controlling of Spatial and Temporal Variations of Plasma Properties in Plasma Devices with Crossed Electric and Magnetic Fields” Inventors Yevgeny Raitses, Alexander Merzhevskiy

A method of crafting spatial variations of the electron cross-field transport by means of localized current-conducting plasma structures such as rotating spoke, in order to control spatial variations of macroscopic plasma properties, including the electric field, electron temperature and plasma density in relevant E crossed B plasma devices such as Hall and helicon plasma thrusters, plasma-beam devices for material processing, magnetic filters for plasma sources, including negative and positive ion sources, and rotating plasma devices such as E cross B mass separation devices etc.
