Quartz Antenna with Hollow Conductor

available technology


André Anders has developed a simple method by which a cathodic arc can be initiated without the need for a high-voltage trigger pulse. “Triggerless” initiation can also be used in vacuum arc ion sources, also known as Mevva ion sources. Berkeley Lab’s new “triggerless” principle has been used...

Cathodic Arc Plasma System with Twist Filter: Advanced Macroparticle Twist Filter, Magnetic Expander and Homogenizer for Cathodic Arc Plasmas IB-1484

: André Anders, Marcela Bilek, Robert MacGill, and Ian Brown have exploited conventional magnetic guiding to minimize plasma losses within a novel filter design, and thus maximize plasma throughput or transport efficiency. The curve describing the axis of the magnetic filter is “twisted”, and thus...
