Measurement of nonuniform magnetized argon plasma discharge parameters

Dağtekin, Ebru
Effects of a magnetic field on the double-probe technique are studied experimentally by means of symmetric floating computer controlled fast double probes in low and intermediate pressure plasmas. In addition, the effects of the magnetic field on the electron temperature, electron density, and electric field have been investigated. As it is expected, when there is no magnetic field, properties of the discharge plasma are best described by Langmuir theory. Whereas, when there’s a magnetic field of sufficient strength Schottky’s theory of ambipolar diffusion applies.
