SPECTROSCOPY: A time-varying electric current passes through a coil creating a time-varying magnetic field around it, which in turn induces azimuthal electric currents in the rarefied gas, leading to break down and formation of a plasma.
Low temperature plasmas represent the amalgamation of fluid mechanics, reaction engineering, physical kinetics, heat transfer, mass transfer, and electromagnetics. The Plasma Module is a specialized tool for modeling non-equilibrium discharges that occur in a wide range of engineering disciplines. There are specialized modeling interfaces for the most common types of plasma reactors including inductively coupled plasmas (ICP), DC discharges, wave heated discharges (microwave plasmas), and capacitively coupled plasmas (CCP). Modeling the interaction between the plasma and an external circuit is an important part of understanding the overall characteristics of a discharge.
