Title: In situ Fourier transform infrared characterization of the plasma chemistry in varying pulsed cycles of a 1,3-butadiene discharge in an inductively coupled gaseous electronics conference cell

Abstract

In situ Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy is used to characterize the plasma chemistry of pulsed 1,3-butadiene (H{sub 2}C=CHCH=CH{sub 2}) discharges subject to varying percentages of the duty cycle in a gaseous electronics conference cell. Variations in densities associated with the major observed spectral bands are closely examined as a function of duty cycle. The possible dissociation mechanisms responsible for all observed vibrations are investigated. For example, the data show that about 44% of CH{sub 2} stretching vibrations during continuous wave biasing are due to free CH{sub 2} daughter species, while only bound CH{sub 2} are observed during pulsing of the discharge. This indicates that only the {pi} bond of the C=C bond is cleaved during pulsed mode operation, with the {sigma} being cleaved during cw biasing.
