electron cyclotron resonance reactor

[i¦lek‚trän ¦sī·klə‚trän ′rez·ə·nəns rē‚ak·tər]
(engineering)
A plasma reactor in which resonant coupling of microwave energy into an electron gas at electron cyclotron resonance accelerates electrons, which in turn ionize and excite the neutral gas, resulting in a low-pressure, almost collisionless plasma.
