    A model of steady-state solitary spots with a step-function dependence of the density of the energy flux from the plasma to the cathode surface on the surface temperature is suggested. While being simple and clear cut, this model, nevertheless, reflects essential features of the physics involved. It is found that a solution obtained by means of the method of matched asymptotic expansions is close ... View full abstract»

    High-current-density pulsed-electron emission is observed from a poled lead zirconium titanate (PZT, Zr/Ti:53/47) ferroelectric ceramic disc on application of short-duration (∼6 ns) negative high-voltage (∼4 kV) pulses. Electron-emission pulses with a peak current density ∼400--450 A/cm2 and a full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) duration of ∼200--250 ns were recorded in th... View full abstract»

    Development of a plasma torch, which is intended as an ignition aide within a supersonic combustor, is studied. The high-voltage discharge and plasma plume generated by the torch module are described in a quiescent environment and in a supersonic crossflow. Voltage-current characteristics of the discharge and optical images of the plasma plume are used to characterize the operation of the torch mo... View full abstract»

    This experimental and theoretical study examines the excitation of a plasma antenna using an argon surface wave discharge operating at 500 MHz with RF power levels up to 120 W and gas pressures between 0.03 and 0.5 mb. The results show that the length of the plasma column increases as the square root of the applied power and that the plasma density decreases linearly from the wave launcher to the ...

    This paper explores the use of miniaturized magnets to enhance the parameters of dc microplasmas. The microplasmas are powered by thin coaxial electrodes and are enhanced by a coaxial magnetron configuration machined from niobium composite magnets. At operating pressures of 1-4 torr, a glow region that is confined to the volume directly over the cathode, forms a traditional magnetron-type annular ... View full abstract»

    We are proposing a new ramp-biased multiple short pulse (RMSP) for AC plasma-display panels, which is composed of multiple short pulses with fast ramp bias up to 5 V/μs. Through adjustment of the period and duty ratio of RMSP and using the tail effect, we have succeeded in controlling the final wall voltage level by ±10 V from the level of (peak RMSP voltage)-(discharge breakdown voltage...

    Fluctuations in atmospheric pressure arc plasma devices play important role in plasma processing applications. A full knowledge and control over such fluctuations can effectively lengthen lifetime and drastically improve performance and reliability. Dynamical analyses of associated experimental fluctuating signals established existence of chaotic dynamics in such devices. However, the origin of su... View full abstract»

    The results of an application of the developed nonlinear theory for atmospheric pressure arc plasma instability to various experiments are presented in this paper. Most of the important experiments on atmospheric pressure arc plasma instability reported in literature are addressed. In all cases, a good match has been observed between experiment and theory. General nature of the theory to explain o... View full abstract»

    In this paper, ion-matrix sheaths inside infinitely long cylindrical bores with longitudinal grooves are studied analytically to optimize ion implantation, concerning a broad range of industrial products. The radius of the cylindrical target is assumed to be less than the sheath length to simulate realistic targets, such as barrels and muzzles. The potential profiles inside and outside the grooves...
