Trochoidal collector where the electrons follow a trochoidal path within the collector has been studied. The trochoidal collector is a crossed field multi-stage depressed collector where axial magnetic field is applied by means of a solenoidal magnet. The electrodes are in the form of half cylinders and hence increase the levels of depression and thereby improve the collector efficiency. The last electrode has a post which extends till the first electrode by which asymmetry in the electric field has been introduced within the collector which in turn decreases the back-streaming of the electrons back into the tube. Increased collector efficiency and reduced back-streaming makes this collector a promising choice for the space applications and hence its performance has been analyzed in this paper.
