Numerical simulation of multi-carrier microwave breakdown in air-SF6 mixtures
In this paper, the multi-carrier microwave breakdown in air-SF6 mixtures is analyzed with the spectral-element time-domain method. In this process, a three-dimensional multi-physics model coupling
Benchmark calculations for electron velocity distribution function obtained with Monte Carlo Flux simulations
Modern, multi-modular plasma modeling requires accurate and versatile methods for the determination of the electron velocity distribution function from which rate coefficients of electron impact
Étude numérique dans une décharge capillaire nanoseconde et dans la décharge contrôlée par barrière diélectrique surfacique : Cinétiques, Transport et Réponses de fluide
Nanosecond pulsed discharges are characterized by high reduced electric fields (hundreds of Td) and strong nonequilibrium. They have characteristic electron energies of a few to tens of eV and
Numerical Study of Nanosecond Capillary and Surface Dielectric Barrier Discharges : Kinetics, Transport and Fluid Responses
Les decharges pulsees nanoseconde sont caracterisees par un fort champ reduit (centaine Td) et une forte thermodynamique hors-equilibre. Ils ont de l’energie electronique de quelques eV a quelques
Developments in the kinetic theories of ion and electron swarms in the 1960's and 70's
The two decades between 1960 to 1980 saw quite a fantastic development in diverse areas in physics, and so also in the quantitative theoretical treatment and deeper understanding of the behaviour of
Microplasmas: A Review
In this paper, a review on microplasma discharges is conducted. The different types and configurations used in microplasmas such as the Cathode Boundary Layer (CBL), Dielectric Barrier Discharge
