Title: Effective ionization coefficients, limiting electric fields, and electron energy distributions in CF{sub 3}I + CF{sub 4} + Ar ternary gas mixtures

Abstract

This paper reports on the effective ionization coefficients, limiting electric fields, electron energy distribution functions, and mean energies in ternary mixtures of (Trifluoroiodomethane) CF{sub 3}I + CF{sub 4} + Ar in the E/N range of 100–700 Td employing a two-term solution of the Boltzmann equation. In the ternary mixture, CF{sub 3}I component is increased while the CF{sub 4} component is reduced accordingly and the 40% Ar component is kept constant. It is seen that the electronegativity of the mixture increases with increased CF{sub 3}I content and effective ionization coefficients decrease while the limiting electric field values increase. Synergism in the mixture is also evaluated in percentage using the limiting electric field values obtained. Furthermore, it is possible to control the mean electron energy in the ternary mixture by changing the content of CF{sub 3}I component.
