Ion implantation and deposition on the inner surfaces of cylinders by exploding metallic foils

Demokan, O
A novel scheme for ion deposition and possibly ion implantation on the inner surfaces of cylindrical targets is proposed and experimentally tested. A large current is passed through a coaxial table-type structure, composed of a straight conductor and a thin metallic foil, surrounding it. The foil evaporates and ionizes forming a metallic plasma, which is pushed radially outward due to the pressure of the magnetic field, confined to the region between the plasma and the conductor. The ions of the foil material are observed to be deposited uniformly on the inner surface of a cylindrical target, enclosing this structure coaxially. Auger analysis on the target implies a possible implantation as well, but this implication needs to be supported by further, extensive measurements, before a concrete statement can be made. The outcome of this pioneering experiment is far from being perfect, but is encouraging. Suggestions for improving the quality of the outcome are made for this promising, single-shot deposition procedure.


Numerical investigation of a dc glow discharge in an argon gas: two-component plasma model
Kemaneci, Efe Hasan; Rafatov, İsmail; Department of Physics (2009)
This thesis deals with a one and two dimensional numerical modeling of a low-pressure DC glow discharge in argon gas. We develop two-component fluid model which uses the diffusion-drift theory for the gas discharge plasma and consists of continuity equations for electrons and ions, as well as Poisson equation for electric field. Numerical method is based on the control volume technique. Calculations are carried out in MATLAB environment. Computed results are compared with the classic theory of glow discharg...
Numerical analysis of radio frequency inductively coupled ion thruster and computation of its performance parameters
Bozkurt, Erdal; Alemdaroğlu, Nafiz.; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
The main goal of this thesis is geometric and parametric analysis of a simulated cylin-drical two-gridded Radio Frequency Inductively Coupled (RF-ICP) ion thruster. Inaddition, instrumental performance of this thruster and the effects of a fixed shapeof the electrodes on ion trajectories are investigated. The simulations of the plasmaand the ion optics are performed by using COMSOL Multiphysics software. The firststep is checking the reliability of the software. Radial and axial simulation parametricresults...
Ion implantation in confined, pinching metallic plasmas
Demokan, O; Marji, E (1999-02-15)
A series of preliminary experiments have been carried out to obtain a metallic arc discharge, in the form of an annular cylindrical column, carrying a current in the axial direction. To assert this geometry, a ring-shaped cathode is adopted and an arc formation is triggered by heating the cathode externally. The plasma, initially in the form of a cylindrical shell, is seen to be confined and pinched by its own magnetic field. The resulting, radially inward flux is observed to produce efficient and multidire...
Plasma Generation in a Gas Discharge System With Irradiated Porous Zeolite
Ozturk, Sevgul; Ozner, Metin; Bulur, Enver; Salamov, Bahtiyar G. (2015-06-01)
The influence of pressure [from atmospheric pressure (AP) to 10(-2) torr] and beta-radiation (1-kGy beta doses) on the current-voltage characteristics, charge trapping effects in porous surfaces, and breakdown voltage (UB) in AP microplasmas are discussed for the first time. This is due to the zeolite cathode (ZC) exposure to beta-radiation resulting in substantial decreases in the UB, discharge currents, and conductivity due to increase in porosity of the material. Results indicated the enhancement of plas...
Annealing improvement on the localized states of plasma grown boron nitride film assessed through admittance measurements
ÖZDEMİR, Orhan; Anutgan, Mustafa; Aliyeva-Anutgan, Tamila; Atilgan, Ismail; Katircioglu, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-05)
Boron nitride (BN) thin film was grown by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique and was investigated by UV-Visible transmission, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and ac conductance spectroscopies. Mainly the density of electronic localized states (D-it) at BN/Si interface was obtained by continuum and statistical models of ac conductance through an MIS structure (Al/BN film/Si). The origins of the electronic defects have been outlined and discussed within the frame of a nitrogen defic...
