The Effect of Metastable-Metastable
Collisional Ionization on the Electron Energy Distribution Function of
Pulsed Discharges. L. J. Overzet, M. B. Hopkins, J. Kleber and C. Bowles.
This is a presentation I gave at the 1995 Gaseous Electronics Conference.
In it I present evidence that metastable-metastable collisional Ionization
is occuring in the afterglow of pulsed rare gas discharges.
Sheath Resistance Measurements
in the GEC Reference Reactor. L. J. Overzet, M. B. Hopkins, J. Kleber
and K. Yi. This is a poster I gave at the 1996 Gaseous Electronics
Conference. Sheath resistance affects the interpretation of Langmuir
probe results becuase it leads to a rising of the plasma potential with
probe current. As such it can cause one to "measure" an anomalously
large electron temperature (and low density). It can become especially
bad in high density plasma sources where the grounded electode area can
be small or removed from contact with the plasma.
Why and How to Pulse a Plasma.
L. J. Overzet. I gave this presentation at Motorola in 1997 as a
seminar. It is an overview of why you would want to pulse a plasma
and how you might go about it.
