Plasma and Supra-Thermal Ion Composition (PLASTIC) Investigation

ResourceID
spase://SMWG/Instrument/STEREO-A/PLASTIC

Description

The PLAsma and SupraThermal Ion and Composition (PLASTIC)
investigation provides composition (M, M/q), energy spectra and directional
information for 0.3-80 keV/q ions, including solar wind H+ and He++ in the
"SWS Small Channel," solar wind C, O, MG, Si, and Fe in the "SWS Main Channel,"
and locally accelerated ions (H+, He++, He+) and pickup ions (He+, <40 keV/q)
in the "Wide Angle Partition."

  The hardware consists of entrance, time of flight, and electronics subsystems.
  Mass spectroscospy is achieved by analysis of energy vs. time-of-flight tracks.
 
  Further detail is available from from Galvin et al, Sp. Sci. Rev. (2008) 136, 437-486.
