Heating of electrons in a high-frequency inductive neutral-loop discharge
- 27 Downloads
Two-dimensional self-consistent simulation is used to study collisionless mechanisms for dissipation of energy of the HF field in an inductive discharge developing in the presence of a magnetic field with a neutral loop. The regimes in which the local electron-cyclotron resonance plays the main role in the heating of plasma electrons are demonstrated. The results of numerical simulation are in agreement with published experimental data, thereby making it possible to qualitatively interpret the latter.
