Research Article
M. Y. Boumendjel, C. Desgranges et al.
We present new collisional-modeling calculations of tungsten plasmas at electron density of about 5 × 1013 cm−3 and for electron temperatures in the range 0.8–5 keV. These conditions are relevant to ...
Research Article
Y. Y. Lau, Dion Li et al.
We consider the limiting current from an emitting patch whose size is much smaller than the anode–cathode spacing. The limiting current is formulated in terms of an integral equation. It is solved ...

We investigate the suitability of using GeV laser wakefield accelerated electron beams to measure strong, B > 0.1 MT, magnetic fields. This method is explored as an alternative to proton ...
