Abstract

We review previously published results, and present new results, on the way current to a cylindrical probe drops below the orbital-motion-limited (OML) value for probe cross-sections too large or concave. Results on size and shape effects arise from unrelated behavior in the near and far potential field, and apply to a general cross-section, which can be characterised by radius Req and perimeter peij of equivalent circles. These results are used to discuss collection interference among two or more parallel bare tethers when brought from far away to contact.
