Paper Abstract

In this work the kinetics of macroparticle charging in the rarified part of the arc plasma jet are studied. The sheath in the vicinity of the macroparticle is collisionless and the problem with different Debye length to macroparticle radius ratio is analyzed. Maxwellian velocity distribution functions with different temperatures for the electrons and ions in an arbitrary ratio are allowed in the model. The influence of the plasma drift velocity on the macroparticle charging is discussed.
