Spectroscopic Diagnostics in the Cathode Fall and Negative Glow of a Nitrogen Glow Discharge

  • Jacques Jolly
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 220)


The development of plasma techniques in industrial processes is arousing many studies on glow discharges, and more particularly on the ionized gas interfacing with a surface. The fundamental mechanisms can be understood only if the characteristics of the plasma in the vicinity of the material are well known; numerical models can then be developed in order to optimize and control the processes in any other than the trial-and-error approach, that most often prevails, when there are no experimental data or numerical models to go by.
