A novel technique for plasma density measurement using surface-wave transmission spectra

Dine, Sebastion; Booth, Jean-Paul; Curley, Garret A; Corr, Cormac; Jolly, J; Guillon, Jean


A technique for the measurement of the absolute electron density in low-pressure plasmas using microwaves is described. It is based on observing the propagation of electromagnetic surface waves (SW) at a plasma-sheath boundary, guided by a dielectric cylinder immersed in the plasma. The transmission spectrum is measured between two antennas situated at either end of the dielectric cylinder and connected to a network analyser. Analytical theory based on the Trivelpiece-Gould work (Trivelpiece...[Show more]
