Ultrastrong stationary double layers are generated in a magnetoplasma by simply applying potential differences between two plasma sources. The potential drop ID of the double layer is increased up to eIDTea×103 (Te is the electron temperature in eV) with no difficulties caused by gas discharge. There are always large spiky fluctuations on the low-potential tail of the double layers.
