Abstract

An old analysis of probe current in a strongly magnetized plasma is reconsidered. It is shown that, in the collisional limit, the plasma beyond the sheath heats up in the collection process at positive probe bias enough. The modified current is compared to the current collected in the case of collection due to Bohm diffusion.
