The propagation of plasmoids (neutralized beams) in a vacuum transverse magnetic field has been studied in the UCI laboratory for several years. The most recent experiments are aimed at studying the plasmoid propagation dynamics and losses in the presence of a background, magnetized plasma which is intended to short the induced polarization electric field and stop the beam. Preliminary results indicate that the beam propagation losses increase with the background plasma density. Principal diagnostics include: magnetically insulated Faraday cups, floating potential probes, calorimeters, microwave interferometer, and thermal-witness paper. Experiments in the near future will use an improved accelerator and transverse-field coil system which allows higher energy, 500 keV, higher current density plasmoids to be studied; this generator will improve the beam uniformity and angular divergence to allow beam propagation for up to five meters and permit study of losses from surface erosion.

The purpose was to study the production of intense negative ion beams in magnetically insulated diodes, and to develop an understanding of this process by measuring the ion beam parameters as a function of diode and cathode plasma conditions in different magnetically insulated diodes. We tried a coaxial diode, a racetrack diode and an annular diode. We used the UCI APEX pulse line that has a nominal output of 1MV, 140kA under matched conditions with a pulse length of 50 nsec. Negative ion intensity and divergence were measured with Faraday-cups and CR-39 track detectors. Cathode plasma was produced by passive dielectric cathodes and later, by an independent plasma gun. This plasma gun was introduced in order to be able to control cathode plasma parameters and production time. Negative ion currents had an intensity of a few A/sq. cm with a divergence ranging between a few tenths milliradians for an active TiH2 plasma gun and 300 milliradians for a passive polyethelene cathode. Negatives ions were usually emitted from a few 'hot spots' on the cathode surface. These 'hot spots' are believed to cause transverse electrical fields in the diode gap responsible for the beam divergence. Mass spectrometry measurements showed that the ion beam consists of mainly H- ions when using a polyethelene or a TiH2 cathodes, and mainly of negative carbon ions when using a carbon cathode. About 10% of the negative ions produced were due to residual gas molecules adsorbed on the cathode surface. This was checked by using a bare aluminum cathode. Negative ion production in the cathode plasma seems to be insensitive to the type of diode used. Beam properties on the other hand, are of course sensitive to diode geometry
