Cross sections set and transport coefficients for Ar+ in Ar/CF4 mixtures

  • 33 Accesses

Abstract

In this letter, we present a cross section set for Ar+ in Ar/CF4 mixtures where existing experimentally obtained data are selected and extrapolated. A Monte Carlo simulation method is applied to accurately calculate transport parameters in hydrodynamic regime. We discuss new data for Ar+ ions in Ar/CF4 mixtures where mean energy, flux and bulk values of reduced mobility and other transport coefficients are given as a function of low and moderate reduced electric fields E/N (E-electric field, N-gas density).
