    In a toroidal plasma device bounded whistler waves are excited to produce the high density plasma. This wave is a toroidal counterpart of well known helicon waves. Our experimental results clearly indicate the difference between helicon modes in cylinder and toroidal bounded whistler modes. In...

    Although alternating-current plasma display panels (ac PDPs) are now produced by several companies, improvements are still necessary. In particular, the overall efficiency of the discharge in the standard configuration is low, on the order of 1 1m/W i.e., about 0.5% of the power dissipated in...
