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.

  • The electron density and ion energy distribution (IED) are investigated in low-pressure dual-frequency capacitively coupled Ar/CF{sub 4} (90%/10%) and Ar/O{sub 2}/CF{sub 4} (80%/10%/10%) plasmas. The relations between controllable parameters, such as high-frequency (HF) power, low-frequency (LF) power and gas pressure, and plasma parameters, such as electron density and IEDs, are studied in detail by utilizing a floating hairpin probe and an energy resolved quadrupole mass spectrometer, respectively. In our experiment, the electron density is mainly determined by the HF power and slightly influenced by the LF power. With increasing gas pressure, the electron density first goes up rapidly to amore » maximum value and then decreases at various HF and LF powers. The HF power also plays a considerable role in affecting the IEDs under certain conditions and the ion energy independently controlled by the LF source is discussed here. For clarity, some numerical results obtained from a two-dimensional fluid model are presented.« less
  • We have measured the gas-density, N, normalized effective ionization coefficient, {bar a}/N, and the electron drift velocity, w, as a function of the density-reduced electric field, E/N, and obtained the limiting, (E/N){sub lim}, value of E/N for the unitary gases Ar, CO{sub 2}, and CF{sub 4}, the binary gas mixtures CO{sub 2}:Ar (20: 80), CO{sub 2}:CH{sub 4} (20:80), and CF{sub 4}:Ar (20:80), and the ternary gas mixtures CO{sub 2}:CF{sub 4}:Ar (10:10:80) and H{sub 2}O: CF{sub 4}:Ar (2:18:80). Addition of the strongly electron thermalizing gas CO{sub 2} or H{sub 2}O to the binary mixture CF{sub 4}:Ar (1) cools'' the mixture (i.e.,more » lowers the electron energies), (2) has only a small effect on the magnitude of w(E/N) in the E/N range employed in the particle detectors, and (3) increases {bar a}/N for E/N {ge} 50 {times} 10{sup {minus}17} V cm{sup 2}. The increase in {bar a}/N, even though the electron energies are lower in the ternary mixture, is due to the Penning ionization of CO{sub 2}(or H{sub 2}O) in collisions with excited Ar* atoms. The ternary mixtures -- being fast, cool, and efficient -- have potential for advanced gas-filled particle detectors such as those for the SCC muon chambers. 17 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • Absolute inelastic cross sections for rotational quantum state to state transitions have been measured in small angle grazing collisions of CsF molecules in collisions with He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, CH/sub 4/, CF/sub 4/, SF/sub 6/, C/sub 2/H/sub 6/, N/sub 2/, CO, CO/sub 2/, N/sub 2/O, CH/sub 3/Cl, CH/sub 3/Br, CF/sub 3/H, CH/sub 3/Cl, CF/sub 3/Br. For the rare gas collision partners the following ..delta..j=1, ..delta..m=0 transitions were measured: (j,m) = (1,0) ..-->.. (2,0), (2,0) ..-->.. (1,0), (2,0) ..-->.. (3,0), (3,0) ..-->.. (2,0) as well as the ..delta..j=2, ..delta..m=0 transition (3,0) ..-->.. (1,0). In addition the ..delta..j=1, ..delta..m=1 transitions (1,1)more » ..-->.. (2,0) and (2,0) ..-->.. (3,1) and the pure ..delta..m=1 transitions (1,1) ..-->.. (1,0) and (3,0) ..-->.. (3,1) were measured. In each case the signs of m and ..delta..m are undetermined. For the other scattering partners only the ..delta..j=1, ..delta..m=0 and ..delta..j=2, ..delta..m=0 transitions were measured. In the collision region the quantization axis of the CsF molecules is defined by a weak electric field (300 V/cm) directed perpendicular to the direction of the velocity selected CsF and the target nozzle beam and thus perpendicular to the relative velocity vector. The apparatus and the techniques used to determine the absolute cross sections are given and the formulas used to derive the various types of cross sections from the pressure dependences are derived. Because of the favorable geometry and nearly monoenergetic conditions it was possible to calculate by a Monte Carlo method a transmission function for each rare gas and transition studied. The tabulated transmission functions make it possible to compare theoretical predicted differential cross sections directly with the reported values. An approximate analytic expression is also given for the (2,0) ..-->.. (3,0) transition which can be used for all scattering targets. Absolute cross sections in the cms for all systems are obtained.« less
  • Several new water-soluble iridium(I) complexes were synthesized and their reactivities with small molecules (H{sub 2} or CO) in polar solvents (DMSO or H{sub 2}O) examined. Reaction of H{sub 2} with [Ir(CO)(TPPMS){sub 3}]CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3} (TPPMS = P(C{sub 6}H{sub 5}){sub 2}(m-C{sub 6}H{sub 4}SO{sub 3}K)) in DMSO or H{sub 2}O produces [cis,mer-Ir(CO)(H){sub 2}(TPPMS){sub 3}]CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3}, while the reaction of CO with [Ir(CO)(TPPMS){sub 3}]-CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3} in water yields [Ir(CO){sub 2}(TPPMS){sub 3}]CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3}. Carbonylation of [Ir(CO){sub 2}(TPPMS){sub 3}]ClO{sub 4} in DMSO produces [Ir(CO){sub 3}(TPPMS){sub 2}]ClO{sub 4} and TPPMS; no reaction is observed in H{sub 2}O. Hydrogenation of [Ir(CO){sub 2}(TPPMS){sub 3}]ClO{sub 4}more » in DMSO or H{sub 2}O yields [cis,mer-Ir(CO)(H){sub 2}(TPPMS){sub 3}]ClO{sub 4}, while reaction of H{sub 2} with an aqueous solution of [Ir(CO)(H{sub 2}O)(TPPTS){sub 2}]CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3} produces [Ir(CO)(H{sub 2}O)(H){sub 2}(TPPTS){sub 2}]CF{sub 3}SO{sub 3}. Reaction of trans-Ir(CO)ClL{sub 2} (L = TPPMS or TPPTS) with excess L in H{sub 2}O produces [Ir(CO)L{sub 3}]Cl, while no reaction occurs in DMSO, [Ir(CO){sub 3}(TPPMS){sub 2}]Cl reacts irreversibly with TPPMS in H{sub 2}O to produce [Ir(CO){sub 2}-(TPPMS){sub 3}]Cl.« less
