原始语种摘要: Systematic calibration experiment of Langmuir probe sheath potential coefficient Λ, which is a critical coefficient for estimating plasma sheath potential, has been carried out in the HL-2A tokamak deuterium plasmas. The electron energy probability function (EEPF) shows that electron outside last-closed-flux-surface (LCFS) is Maxwell distribution, but inside LCFS it changes to bi-Maxwell. Two kinds of plasma potential measuring method and three kinds Λ estmating method were compared. It is found that the estimated Λ coefficient is in the region of 2–3 outside LCFS and then increases to ~5 inside LCFS due to the high temperature electron effect. Fortunately, the results show that the commonly used value Λ = 2.8 is still available to calculate plasma potential when we use the overestimated...
