Fluid modeling for plasma-enhanced direct current chemical vapor deposition
Abstract. A self-consistent continuum (fluid) model for a direct current discharge used in a chemical vapor deposition system is developed. The model is built for a two-dimensional axisymmetric
Monte Carlo modeling of radio-frequency breakdown in argon
This paper contains results of the detailed simulation study of the breakdown in low-pressure radio-frequency argon discharges. Calculations were performed by using a Monte Carlo code including
Causes of plasma column contraction in surface-wave-driven discharges in argon at atmospheric pressure.
From this analysis, the dissociative recombination is shown to be the leading mechanism in the constriction of surface-wave plasmas.

Electron energy distribution is a fundamental parameter for proper understanding of electrical discharge processes. The discharge mechanism that should be considered depends upon the application,
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

Electron energy distribution functions occupy a central role in the theoretical and numerical analyses of interaction of electrons with neutral species in the general area of gas discharges. The
Analysis of swarm coefficients in a gas for bi-modal electron energy distribution model
Cross sections for collision between electrons and neutrals in a gas discharge are essential for theoretical and computational developments. They are also required to interpret and analyze the

Excitation of helium atoms in collisions with plasma electrons in an electric field
The rate constants are evaluated for excitation of helium atoms in metastable states by electron impact if ionized helium is located in an external electric field and is supported by it, such that a
