Abstract: GP8.00084 : A Simple Analytic Double Layer
(University of Colorado)
A simple model comprised of Debye-shielding electrons and inter-penetrating ion beams leads to formation of double layers. The key non dimensional parameter is the ion-beam energy to electron temperature ratio. The simple model permits an analytic solution which will be presented.
