Abstract

Physical properties of non-uniform DC-driven glow discharge in argon at pressure 1 torr are analyzed numerically. Spatially two-dimensional axial-symmetric model is based on the diffusion-drift theory of gas discharge. Results presented compare favorably with the classic theory of glow discharges and exhibit good agreement with the experimental result. Comparison with the result of spatially one-dimensional model is performed. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All fights reserved.
