A theory for formation of a low pressure, current-free double layer

Lieberman, M; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick


A theory is developed for the formation of a low pressure, current-free double layer just inside an upstream dielectric source chamber connected to a larger diameter, downstream metallic expansion chamber. The double layer is described using four groups of charged particle: thermal ions, mono-energetic accelerated ions flowing downstream, accelerated electrons flowing upstream and thermal electrons. The accelerated electrons are formed downstream from an initially nearly half-Maxwellian...[Show more]
