I am cheerful for higher ion energies than 20Kev if there is a way to get them. Velocity and size of the plasmoid at a frequency should increase as the square root of the energy.

It will take me a while to figure out what voltage the antennas could be driven to and second what energy levels the ions could be pumped to.
