Negative Ion-Neutral Reactions in Townsend Discharges

Published

Author(s)

James K. Olthoff, MVVS. Rao

Abstract

Relative intensities and translational ion-flux energy distributions are presented for negative ions sampled from Townsend discharges in O2, SF6, and CF4 for a high range of density reduced electric fields greater than 2 W 10-18 V m2 (> 2 kTd). These results are discussed in light of relevant ion-molecule reactions where available.
