Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) torch

This model investigates the electrical and thermal characteristics of an inductively coupled plasma torch at atmospheric pressure. The discharge is assumed to be in local thermodynamic equilibrium.

In-Plane Microwave Plasma

Wave heated discharges may be very simple, where a plane wave is guided into a reactor using a waveguide, or very complicated as in the case with ECR (electron cyclotron resonance) reactors. In this example, a wave is launched into reactor and an Argon plasma is created. The wave is partially absorbed and reflected by the plasma which sustains the plasma.

Dipolar Microwave Plasma Source

This model presents a 2D axisymmetric dipolar microwave plasma source sustained through resonant heating of the electrons. This is known as electron cyclotron resonance (ECR), which occurs when a suitable high magnetic flux density is present along with the microwaves. This is an advanced model that showcases many of the features that make COMSOL unique, including: Infinite elements for the ...

Electrodeless Lamp

This model simulates an electrodeless lamp with argon/mercury chemistry. The low excitation threshold for mercury atoms means that even though the mercury is present in small concentrations, its behavior dominates. There is strong UV emission from the plasma at 185 nm and 253 nm. The UV emission can stimulate phosphors coated on the surface of the bulb. From an electrical point of view, the lamp ...

3D ICP Reactor, Argon Chemistry

3D plasma modeling is possible to do in COMSOL. A square coil is placed on top of a dielectric window and is electrically excited at 13.56MHz. A plasma is formed in the chamber beneath the dielectric window, which contains Argon gas at low pressure (20 mtorr). The gas flows into the process chamber from two 2 inch ports and the gas is extracted through a single 4 inch port. The plasma is ...

DC Glow Discharge

DC glow discharges in the low-pressure regime have long been used for gas lasers and fluorescent lamps. DC discharges are attractive to study because the solution is time independent. The 1D and 2D models show how to use the DC Discharge interface to set up an analysis of a positive column. The discharge is sustained by emission of secondary electrons at the cathode.

Capacitively Coupled Plasma Simulator

The NIST Gaseous Electronics Conference has provided a platform for studying Capacitively Coupled Plasma (CCP) reactors, which is what this application is based upon. The operating principle of a capacitively coupled plasma is different when compared to the inductive case. In a CCP reactor, the plasma is sustained by applying a sinusoidal electrostatic potential across a small gap filled with a ...

Thermal Plasma

This model simulates a plasma at medium pressure (2 torr) where the plasma is still not in local thermodynamic equilibrium. At low pressures the two temperatures are decoupled but as the pressure increases the temperatures tend towards the same limit.

Harmonic Content of the Power Deposition into a Dual Frequency Capacitively Coupled Plasma

Energy transfer from the time varying electrostatic field to electrons in a capacitively coupled plasmas (CCP) does not exclusively occur at twice the RF frequency. Due to the highly nonlinear mechanism of power transfer from the fields to the electrons, power deposition occurs at frequencies higher than twice the driving frequency. For dual frequency CCP reactors the harmonic content of the ...

Benchmark Model of a Capacitively Coupled Plasma

The underlying physics of a capacitively coupled plasma is rather complicated, even for rather simple geometric configurations and plasma chemistries. This model benchmarks the Capacitively Coupled Plasma physics interface against many different codes.
