Electrical Discharge in Gases and Low-Temperature Plasma Processing
Yongho KimP-24, Los Alamos National Laboratory
A short account of the physics of electrical discharges in gases is given in view of its historical evolution and application to low-temperature plasma processing. In addition of the early work from J.S.E. Townsend and F. Paschen, we discuss the main phenomena affecting gas discharges like electron heating and electron collisions. Los Alamos has been focused on atmospheric pressure and non-thermal plasma work. Some of the projects will be introduced at the end of the seminar.
