Numerical Study for Pure Nitrogen Gas Discharge


A theoretical approach for calculating the Electron Energy Distribution Function (EEDF) and electron transport parameters (ionization and diffusion coefficients, drift velocity, mobility, characteristic energy and electron mean energy) has been established in a weakly ionized pure nitrogen (N2) which investigated for the steady-state conditions. With in this approach, the effect of the reduced electric field strength (E/N) on these parameter have been studied and calculated numerically for a wide range of (E/N) from ((0.1-200)Td) (1Td = 10-17 V.cm2 =0.354 at 0 oC) by using the two-term Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) approximation method. The excellent agreement of the present result with the other published data according to the proposed cross section. These analyses are carried out using a constructed computer code and a Matlab (version: (R2008a)) scientific software
