The properties of low-temperature plasmas are finding extensive use for chemical reactions. Efficient plasma-chemistry reactions require a steady-state plasma with a degree of ionization ..cap… Expand

A method is proposed in which one uses the voltage-current characteristics of a single langmuir probe to derive the basic characteristics for the plasma from a heavy electronegative gas: electron… Expand

The dissocation of carbon dioxide in a steady-state beam--plasma discharge has been studied. The experiments show that the degree of conversion is 0.75--1. The efficiency of the energy pumped into… Expand

Linearized kinetic equations are derived to study the effects of the transverse electron beam dimensions on the beam-plasma instability. By choosing the appropriate parameters of the plasma and… Expand
