Influence of Acoustic Waves on Plasma Parameters in a Molecular Gas Discharge
Abstract:A low-temperature nitrogen plasma in an acoustical wave field directed along the plasma column was experimentally investigated. The influence of the acoustical waves on a number of parameters including the discharge current, the temperature of the gas, the electron temperature and the electron concentration was established. The possibility of the variation of the parameters of a low-temperature plasma over a large range by the creation of an acoustical wave has been shown. The peculiarities of the modulation of the nitrogen plasma parameters by acoustic waves have been investigated.
