Title: Numerical Simulations of Virtual Anodes in Ion Beams Emissions in Space
Authors: Wang, J.
Lai, S.T.
Issue Date: Jun-1996
Citation: New Orleans, LA
Abstract: Standard theories have shown that when the current density in a one-dimensional electron or ion beam exceeds a critical value, a potential hump will show up. This hump will behave as a virtual electrode to the beam particles. Measurements have demonstrated the existence of virtual cathodes and anodes. Results are presented of particle-in-cell simulations of ion beam emissions in space.
