Kinetic model for a low-pressure discharge with negative ions

Chabert, Pascal; Sheridan, T


A computational model of a low-pressure discharge having a negative-ion component is developed. Many existing models for this type of discharge consider collisionless positive ions and two negative species each obeying Boltzmann relations. Our aim is to relax the Boltzmann-negative-ion assumption and we use a more realistic model with kinetic positive ions, kinetic negative ions and Boltzmann electrons. Positive and negative ions are created uniformly in the discharge at a constant rate, and...[Show more]
