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 alpha..approx.10/sup -2/. The temperature of the neutral gas must be lower than the electron temperature. In the present work, beam--plasma discharges are studied for use in plasma chemistry. The basic principles for designing the apparatus are determined. Experimental results are obtained on the… Expand
