ABSTRACT
Comments on the article, titled `On the surface condition of Langmuir probes in reactive plasmas,' published in the journal 'Applied Physics Letter'. Article's conclusion that the negative ion properties cannot be measured from the peak of the second derivative of the probe characteristic; Use of Druyvesteyn's formula to the case with negative ions.

    The specific features of the probe I-V characteristics in flowing-afterglow plasmas are studied experimentally and in theory. As it was found at a probe potential equal to the plasma one, V = 0, an electron concentration in a probe vicinity (and a probe current) is decreased due to a predominant...
