    Greetings !

    This is not really a discussion thread, I just
    wan'na ask a question and hope someone could
    finally help me with this because I couldn't
    find this info during the several months I
    occassionaly tried to search for it (even
    briefly studied a Hall Effect thruster thesis).

    I need the ionisation cross-section and the Debye
    lenght (for ion rich plasma) of Xenon. Also, precise
    formulas of electron free paths in Xenon plasma
    at the density and pressure of a typical HET or IBT
    would be helpfull if you got'em (I have some formulas,
    but without the above data they're not of much use and
    they're pretty complex for me right now.)

    Thanks a lot. :smile:

    Live long and prosper.

    You'll probably get more help if you explain what the motivation is (and if it looks worthwhile) :) Maybe there are alternative methods, but who would know without an objective? Sorry I don't know what a HET or IBT is.
