Title: A study of the glow discharge plasma jet of the novel Hamburger-electrode

Abstract

To generate atmospheric pressure glow discharge plasma jets (APGDPJs), a novel Hamburger-electrode was proposed. Through the study on electric field distributions, flow field distributions, and characteristics of the discharge and jet, we found that adopting the mode of dielectric barrier discharge with non-uniform thickness of dielectric, it was easy to form the strong electric field areas which were conducive to generate discharge and electric field distributions with large electric field intensity in the narrow gap and weak electric field intensity in the wide gap that were not inclined to form a filament discharge. Using the structure of evenly distributed inner electrodes, it was easy to weaken the pressure of strong electric field areas and form flow field distributions which is beneficial for taking out the high density charged particles and generating APGDPJs. Stable APGDPJs in nitrogen with 3.5 mm in diameter and 9 mm in length were formed by using the novel Hamburger-electrode.

  • Hysteresis in amplitudes of the self-excited oscillations of the floating potential and discharge current is observed in an unmagnetized co-axial electrode-geometry DC glow discharge plasma system. The nonlinearities of these oscillations are studied using standard dynamical analysis tools. The characterization revealed the transition of low-amplitude high-frequency period-n oscillations to a large amplitude low frequency period-1 oscillations through a chaotic intermediate route. The transition of the low amplitude, high frequency period-n oscillations to chaotic type is observed to be linked to the dynamical change in the plasma system, i.e., after a negative differential resistance (NDR) region, whereas the transition from chaoticmore » to period-1 is observed to be linked to a discharge current threshold.« less
  • The characteristics of the spatial distribution of Ar glow discharge plasma were experimentally investigated. By means of direct comparisons between theory and experiment, the effects of the variation of gap separation, gas pressure, and electrode radius on the spatial distributions of electron density and electric field were studied. Results indicate that the maximum electron density moves toward the cathode as the gap separation or gas pressure increases while variation of electrode radius produces little effect. Predictions from a theoretical model have been experimentally verified. General agreements between theory and experiment were found to be reasonably good except in the cathodemore » region, where discrepancy exists. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • The evaluation of the electron temperature, density, and plasma potential in a glow cleaning discharge hydrogen plasma in the Novillo tokamak is presented. The objective was to investigate the plasma conditions allowing the removal of impurities from the vacuum vessel, thus avoiding the formation of other chemical compounds that could remain adhered to its inner walls. The discharges were accomplished through two anodes and one cathode within the 0.07 to 0.2-mbar-pressure interval at a power density in the range of 100 to 900 W/m{sup 2}. The plasma parameters were obtained using Langmuir probes. The results indicated that the electron temperaturemore » lay between 3 and 10 eV, the electron density was approximately 10{sup 8} to 10{sup 9} cm{sup -3}, and the plasma potential was in the 10- to 18-V range. The electron energy was in the range of the dissociation energy for most impurities found in the Novillo tokamak.« less
  • Hilbert Huang transform (HHT) based time series analysis was carried out on nonlinear floating potential fluctuations obtained from hollow cathode glow discharge plasma in the presence of anode glow. HHT was used to obtain contour plots and the presence of nonlinearity was studied. Frequency shift with time, which is a typical nonlinear behaviour, was detected from the contour plots. Various plasma parameters were measured and the concepts of correlation coefficients and the physical contribution of each intrinsic mode function have been discussed. Physically important quantities such as instantaneous energy and their uses in studying physical phenomena such as intermittency andmore » non-stationary data have also been discussed.« less
  • We report the effect of hydrogen addition on plasma parameters of argon-oxygen magnetron glow discharge plasma in the synthesis of H-doped TiO{sub 2} films. The parameters of the hydrogen-added Ar/O{sub 2} plasma influence the properties and the structural phases of the deposited TiO{sub 2} film. Therefore, the variation of plasma parameters such as electron temperature (T{sub e}), electron density (n{sub e}), ion density (n{sub i}), degree of ionization of Ar and degree of dissociation of H{sub 2} as a function of hydrogen content in the discharge is studied. Langmuir probe and Optical emission spectroscopy are used to characterize the plasma.more » On the basis of the different reactions in the gas phase of the magnetron discharge, the variation of plasma parameters and sputtering rate are explained. It is observed that the electron and heavy ion density decline with gradual addition of hydrogen in the discharge. Hydrogen addition significantly changes the degree of ionization of Ar which influences the structural phases of the TiO{sub 2} film.« less
