Collisionless expansion of pulsed radio frequency plasmas. I. Front formation

Schroder, T.; Grulke, O; Klinger, Thomas; Boswell, Roderick; Charles, Christine


The dynamics during plasma expansion are studied with the use of a versatile particle-in-cell simulation with a variable neutral gas density profile. The simulation is tailored to a radio frequency plasma expansionexperiment [Schröder et al., J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 47(5), 055207 (2014)]. The experiment has shown the existence of a propagating ion front. The ion front features a strong electric field and features a sharp plasma potential drop similar to a double layer. However, the presented...[Show more]
