Self-consistent model of non-equilibrium spherical microwave discharge

Rafatov, İsmail
A self-consistent model of a non-equilibrium spherical microwave discharge is presented. We use a two-temperature plasma model. Numerical experiments are carried out for the discharge in argon at atmospheric pressure. Results are presented for the characteristics of the discharge plasma against the external parameters (the power and frequency of the applied electromagnetic field and the size of the discharge chamber).
