Production of Negative Hydrogen Ions Within the MMS Fast Plasma Investigation Due to Solar Wind Bombardment

Abstract: The particle data delivered by the Fast Plasma Investigation instrument aboard National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission allow for exceptionally high-resolution examination of the electron and ion phase space in the near-Earth plasma environment. It is necessary to identify populations which originate from instrumental effects. Using Fast Plasma Investigation’s Dual Electron Spectrometers, we isolate a high-energy (approximately kiloelectron volt)…
