Discusses the use of helium 1 intensity ratios, obtained by a collisional radiative (CR) model, to measure electron density and temperature in high density plasma. Effective emission rate coefficients in the CR model; electron temperature and density measurements using helium 1 line intensity ratios; Effects of hot electrons on the line intensity ratios.

    Pressure and He mixing effects on plasma parameters in electron temperature control using a grid system are investigated. Electron temperature is higher in lower pressure, when the electron temperature is high and not controlled. Electron density can be increased by about three times by...

    Molecular exclusion surfaces [J. Bentley, J. Phys. Chem. A 104, 9630 (2000)] have been determined for a number of molecules and molecular ions interacting with argon or helium atoms. These surfaces represent the boundaries between the molecules and their environment and have application, for...

    Profiles of the Hel 447.1 nm and Hel 492.2 nm spectral lines of neutral helium have been measured in a current sheet plasma of a "Current Sheet 3D" device. We performed theoretical calculations of these profiles using the model microfield method. Analyzing profiles of the Hel 447.1 nm and Hel...
