This ebook resulted from the NATO complex examine Workshop on “Electron Kinetics and purposes of Glow Discharges,” held in St. Petersburg, Russia, on could 19-23, 1997. Glow discharges have came across common functions in lots of technological strategies from the manufacture of semiconductors, to fresh advancements in na- know-how, to the conventional fields of fuel lasers, and discharge lamps. therefore, the curiosity within the physics of glow discharges has skilled yet one more resurgence of curiosity. whereas the non-equilibrium personality of glow discharges is extensively approved, the opinion nonetheless prevails that the most positive aspects will be captured by means of fluid versions, and that kinetic remedies are just required for the knowledge of sophisticated info. The erroneousness of this trust is established via the failure of fluid types to explain many simple positive factors of glow discharges comparable to, for example, electrode phenomena, striations, and collisionless heating results. An sufficient description of glow discharges therefore needs to be of kinetic nature.

13 Torr. The results of MEE and local models are close that leads to the same value of reduced field. However Ez /N in PIC MC model is significantly higher. This corresponds to the twice increase of mean electron energy and, as a consequence, electron density on a discharge axis drops. The difference in ionisation rates is less stressed. In the same time the radial profiles in MEE and PIC MC models are notably more flat than in local model. As it is well seen MEE method incorrectly describes the discharge at low pressures because the electron diffusion loss rate in MEE does not depend on electron energy.
