Periodic electron structures in gases: a fluid model of the ‘‘window’’ phenomenon

Nicoletopoulos, P; Robson, Robert

Description

Periodic electron spatial structures in gases occur within a window of voltages and pressures. Recent accurate solutions of Boltzmann’s equation portray this effect, but offer little physical insight into the causes of windowing. Here we show for the first time how such insight can be obtained using the fluid model established by Robson, White, and Petrović [Rev. Mod. Phys. 77, 1303 (2005)], with an appropriate generalization of the heat flux ansatz. Conversely, the success in portraying...[Show more]
