Title: Effect of nonlocal electron kinetics on the characteristics of a dielectric barrier discharge in xenon

Abstract

The established dynamics of a dielectric barrier discharge in xenon at a pressure of 400 Torr is simulated in the framework of a one-dimensional fluid model in the local and nonlocal field approximations. It is shown that taking into account the nonlocal character of the electric field does not qualitatively change physical processes in a dielectric barrier discharge, but significantly affects its quantitative characteristics. In particular, the sheath thickness decreases, plasma ionization intensifies, the spatiotemporal distribution of the mean electron energy changes, and the discharge radiation efficiency increases. Electron kinetics in a dielectric barrier discharge in xenon is analyzed using the nonlocal field approximation.
