Abstract

Influences of nitrogen ratio on plasma detachment and molecular activated recombination (MAR) processes during combined seeding with hydrogen have been investigated utilizing end-loss plasma in the GAMMA 10/PDX tandem mirror. Additional gases were injected under the condition that hydrogen partial pressure was fixed and nitrogen partial pressure was changed from 0% - 10% compared to that of hydrogen. Electron density and ion flux further decrease with increasing nitrogen ratio. In addition, it is suggested that the hydrogen-MAR process that begins with dissociative attachment is suppressed during combined seeding of nitrogen and hydrogen. Observed emission spectrum of NH radicals suggests that the density of NH increases as nitrogen ratio increases and nitrogen-induced MAR efficiently contributes to the reduction of particle flux.
