Abstract : A study of the processes which influence the efficiency of the rf hydrogen gas dissociator is made. Based on this study, a dissociator is developed by applying a dc magnetic field on the rf plasma. The influence of the magnetic field on the plasma is then evaluated. It is found that in this configuration the power consumption of the dissociator is decreased appreciably. Also, the application of the dc magnetic field allows the application of the dc magnetic field allows the efficiency to be held at a constant level, while the hydrogen gas pressure is reduced. Based on these findings some approaches for the development of a dissociator low in gas and rf power consumption are presented. (Author)
