    Measured relative densities as a function of O2 addition in a CH3F/O2 inductively coupled plasma changed abruptly for H, O, and particularly F atoms (factor of 4) at 48% O2. A corresponding transition was observed in electron density, effective electron temperature, and gas temperature, as well...

    Thomson scattering is a well-established diagnostic for measuring local electron temperature and density in fusion plasma, but this technique is particularly difficult to implement due to stray light that can easily mask the scattered signal from plasma. To mitigate this problem in the...

    By modeling the dynamics of a large ensemble of particles, it is shown that slow electrons in a two-temperature plasma are in equilibrium with the electron component rather than with cold ions. The result of cooling by a cold ion component is that the number of the low-energy electrons only...

    The distributions of the electron density in a plasma produced by helicon waves and the corresponding wave amplitudes and phases are studied experimentally. The measurements were carried out in an argon plasma at a pressure of 3 mtorr and at an input RF power of up to 600 W. The magnetic field...
