A perturbation model has been developed to describe the evolution of an expanding plasma sheath around a cathode after a high-voltage negative pulse is applied to the cathode, simulating the conditions in devices such as those used for plasma source ion implantation. The set of governing equations consists of two coupled collisionless fluid equations for ions, and Poisson's equation and Boltzmann's assumption for electrons. The time-dependent, self-consistent expressions for the potential, ion density and ion flux are obtained and compared successfully with experimental and simulation results.

Excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots
KARABULUT, İBRAHİM; Safak, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-07)
The excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots with a semiparabolic confining potential are studied under the density matrix formalism. First, within the framework of the strong confinement approximation, we present the excitonic states and then calculate the excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties, such as second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, nonlinear absorption coefficient and refractive index changes. We find the explicit analytical expres...
Radiative gas-dynamic model of a continuous optical discharge in a gravitational field: quasi-optical approximation
Rafatov, İsmail (IOP Publishing, 2009-08-07)
We consider a continuous optical discharge (COD) sustained by a vertically directed weakly focused CO(2) laser beam, in a gravitational field. We used a full two-dimensional radiative gas-dynamic numerical model for the COD, which uses realistic quasi optics and takes refraction of the laser radiation in the plasma properly into account in the description of the laser beam propagation. The model is applied to calculate the parameters of the COD in a converging CO(2) laser beam in free air atmosphere as a fu...
Spatial stabilization of Townsend and glow discharges with a semiconducting cathode
Salamov, BG; Ellialtioglu, S; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Lebedeva, NN; Patriskii, LG (IOP Publishing, 1996-03-14)
The physical processes determining the functions of an ionization system and especially the discharge stabilization by the distributed resistance of a semiconducting cathode in such a system are studied. The current-voltage (I-U) characteristics of the system with a semiconducting GaAs cathode are obtained experimentally as functions of the gap pressure P (16-760 Torr) and inter-electrode distance d (10 mu m to 5 mm), which are varied for the first time over very wide ranges. The experiments showed that the...
Modelling of a continuous optical discharge stabilized by a gas flow in quasi-optical approximation
Rafatov, İsmail; Yedierler, Burak (IOP Publishing, 2009-03-07)
We consider a continuous optical discharge (COD) sustained by a weakly focused CO(2) laser beam and stabilized by a cold gas flow incident in the direction of the laser radiation propagation. We develop and examine a two-dimensional radiative gas-dynamic model for COD which uses realistic quasi-optics and takes refraction of the laser radiation in the plasma properly into account in describing the laser beam propagation. The model is applied to calculate the parameters of COD in the air flow as functions of...
VISUALIZATION OF ELECTRICAL INHOMOGENEITIES IN HIGH-OHMIC SEMICONDUCTOR PLATES BY AN IONIZATION-TYPE PHOTOGRAPHIC SYSTEM
LEBEDEVA, NN; SALAMOV, BG; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; ALLAKHVERDIEV, KR (IOP Publishing, 1994-06-14)
A device for rapid visualization of electrical and spatial inhomegeneities of a semi-insulating GaAs (rho greater-than-or-equal-to 10(6) OMEGA cm) is described. This visualizer is a modification of the ionization type photographic system in which a semiconducting plate is placed between transparent plane parallel electrodes in the gas discharge cell. The gas discharge gaps are formed between free surfaces of the semiconductor and electrodes. When a voltage is applied to the electrodes a discharge luminescen...
