DISCUSSION ON HOT ELECTRICAL PROBE MEASUREMENTS IN A NEGATIVE ION SOURCE
A probe theory for electron and ion collection and electron emission in a magnetic field and in the presence of negative ions is presented. It is shown that the electron temperature and the plasma potential can be estimated from the floating potentials of a probe being operated in hot emitting and cold states. A comparison is made with experimental data.
