Oxygen Boltzmann Analysis

The Boltzmann equation can be solved to validate sets of electron impact collision cross sections. In fact, sets of collision cross sections are traditionally inferred by solving a two-term approximation to the Boltzmann equation and comparing the results to swarm experiments. This model solves a two-term approximation to the Boltzmann equation and compares the computed drift velocity and ...

Atmospheric Pressure Corona Discharge

This model simulates a negative corona discharge occurring in between two co-axially fashioned conductors. The negative electric potential is applied to the inner conductor and the exterior conductor is grounded. The modeled discharge is simulated in argon at atmospheric pressure.

Ion Energy Distribution Function

One of the most useful quantites of interest after solving a self-consistent plasma model is the ion energy distribution function (IEDF). The magnitude and shape of the IEDF depends on many of the discharge parameters; pressure, plasma potential, sheath width etc. At very low pressures the plasma sheath is said to be collisionless, meaning that the ion energy is not retarded by collisions with ...

Surface Chemistry Tutorial

Surface chemistry is often the most important and most overlooked aspect of reacting flow modeling. Surface rate expressions can be hard to find or not even exist at all. Often it is preferable to use sticking coefficients to describe surface reactions because they can be estimated intuitively. The tutorial model simulates outgassing from a wafer during a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) ...

Dielectric Barrier Discharge

This model simulates electrical breakdown in an atmospheric pressure gas. Modeling dielectric barrier discharges in more than one dimension is possible, but the results can be difficult to interpret because of the amount of competing physics in the problem. In this simple model the problem is reduced to 1D by assuming the dielectric gap is much smaller than the diameter of the plates. To ...

Drift Diffusion Tutorial

The Drift Diffusion interface solves a pair of reaction/advection/diffusion equations, one for the electron density and the other for the mean electron energy. This tutorial example computes the electron number density and mean electron energy in a drift tube. Electrons are released due to thermionic emission on the left boundary with an assumed mean electron energy. The electrons are then ...

GEC ICP Reactor, Argon Chemistry

The GEC cell was introduced by NIST in order to provide a standardized platform for experimental and modeling studies of discharges in different laboratories. The plasma is sustained via inductive heating. The Reference Cell operates as an inductively-coupled plasma in this model. This model investigates the electrical characteristics of the GEC reference cell for argon chemistry.

Argon Boltzmann Analysis

The electron energy distribution function (EEDF) plays an important role in the overall behavior of discharges. Analytic forms of the EEDF exist such as Maxwellian or Druyvesteyn, but in some cases they fail to fit the discharge physics. This tutorial model investigates the effects of various parameters on the electron energy distribution function and rate coefficients for an argon discharge.

GEC CCP Reactor, Argon Chemistry, 1D

The NIST GEC CCP reactor provides a platform for studying capacitively coupled plasmas. Even the simplest plasma models are quite involved so a 1D example helps in understanding the physics without excessive CPU time. The problem has no steady-state solution, although a periodic steady-state solution is reached after a suitable number of RF cycles (usually >1000).
