Argon Boltzmann Analysis

Application ID: 8619

The electron energy distribution function (EEDF) plays an important role in the overall behavior of discharges. Analytic forms of the EEDF exist such as Maxwellian or Druyvesteyn, but in some cases they fail to fit the discharge physics.

This tutorial model investigates the effects of various parameters on the electron energy distribution function and rate coefficients for an argon discharge.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
