What happens in Plasma when ions and electrons collide? I know that Plasma is when you have a soup of electrons and ions, which results from a gas being stripped from its electrons. My thinking now would be that an electron bumping into an ion would result in the opposite: the plasma would become a regular gas again. But I am not sure because even cold plasma is extremely hot, and if the temperature of a gas is high enough, the gas gets stripped of its electrons. I hope that somebody can help me with this confusion.
Additionally, I know that with magnetic confinement of plasma, the electrons and ions get separated as they have a different Larmor radius, so them bumping into each other is no concern.
