Electron energy probability function and L-p similarity in low pressure inductively coupled bounded plasma

Chatterjee, Sanghamitro; Bhattacharjee, Sudeep; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Rod


Particle-In-Cell (PIC) simulations are carried out to investigate the effect of discharge length (L) and pressure (p) on Electron Energy Probability Function (EEPF) in a low pressure radio frequency (rf) inductively coupled plasma (ICP) at 13.56 MHz. It is found that for both cases of varying L (0.1–0.5 m) and p (1–10 mTorr), the EEPF is a bi-Maxwellian with a step in the bounded direction (x) and non-Maxwellian with a hot tail in the symmetric unbounded directions (y, z). The plasma space...[Show more]
