Ok here goes one of my crazy , maybe not so questions. When ionization occurs , the electrons and ions form a plasma , now if that plasma would be heavily confined with a +polarity electric field , that would only confine the ions as they have the same charge and would repel from wherever the field would come but now the electrons would try to "run" to the + electric field metal plate or whatever conductor and crush into it , I hope I am getting this right so far, now if we would put some special electrodes before the plate that is charged at some + potential to confine the plasma would the electrons leave the ions and charge the electrodes , giving excess voltage on them , now if so then what would happen to the ions , can there be a ion only plasma , can the electron fully leave the atom from which it originated from and if so then I guess it must involve a certain energy level or so? Now I ask this partly because there was a discussion here of pF time ago about what would happen to a block of copper if it somehow lost it's electrons , and a forum member correctly said that the protons would go flying in opposite directions due to electric repulsion of the same charge and this acceleration would result in a release of energy etc. Now I just though , you can't take the electrons away from an atom in the typical 3 ground states of matter but what about a plasma.?
