Abstract

We developed and tested a simple hybrid model for a glow discharge, which incorporates nonlocal ionization by fast electrons into the "simple" and "extended" fluid frameworks. Calculations have been performed for an argon gas. Comparison with the experimental data as well as with the hybrid (particle) and fluid modelling results demonstated good applicability of the proposed model. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics.
