The normalized monoenergetic diffusion coefficients , where is the particle energy) for (a) Mirror and (b) QHS, shown as a function of collision frequency normalized to the particle speed . DKES calculations are shown as points, and fits based on Eq. (2) in the text are shown as lines. The different lines for each configuration represent calculations for different values for the radial electric field. The normalized electric fields for the Mirror calculations are labeled; the QHS calculations use the same values.
