Shadowing and the Plasma-Sheath Transition Layer

Abstract

This paper gives a rigorous derivation of the system μ2 d w0 dζ 2 = w2 0 + ζ , w0(ζ0) = −(−ζ0), dw0 dζ (ζ0) = 2 (−ζ0)−1/2, ζ0 < 0, governing the electric potential in the transition layer joining quasi-neutral plasma to space charge sheath in a weakly ionized plasma. The parameter μ represents the tolerance for “shadowing,” i.e., it measures the “distance… (More)
