The Vibrational Distribution Function of the N2(C, v’=0-4) state is analyzed by using optical emission spectroscopy in N2-Ar (0-95% Ar) discharge induced by a helical cavity excited at 27 MHz and 200 Pa. The state-to-state modelling shows that the kinetics involving N2(A) metastable specie becomes dominant with increasing the Ar amount in the gas...

We are presenting an experimental study of an Ar-H2O radiofrequency (RF) discharge at 67 and266 Pa, excited by an original helical plasma source at 27 MHz and power of 30 W. The argon percentagein the mixture was changed from 0 to 95 %. Oxygen and hydrogen atomic lines together with molecularemissions originated from the OH(A2S+) and N2(C3Pu) state...

This paper presents results from both experimental and modelling studies of a flowing afterglow in N2–O2 mixtures observed in a plasma-chemical reactor. The plasma is generated at a pressure of 440 Pa by a microwave cavity working at the excitation frequency of 433 MHz.

An Ar-H2O discharge with Ar content from 0 to 95 % at 67 and 266 Pa have been studied by optical emission spectroscopy. The plasma was excited at 27 MHz by a helical cavity with a power set at 30 W. The rotational temperatures of N2(C3Πu) and OH(A2 Σ + ) emitters were determined through spectral simulations. For added Ar percentages smaller than 95...

Optical emission spectroscopy, ranging from visible to near infrared, is used to determine densities and rotational temperatures of N2(B 3Πg) and N2(C 3Πu) states in a nitrogen–argon (0–95% Ar) discharge, under moderate pressures (200–400 Pa). The plasma is sustained by a helical cavity with an excitation frequency of 27 MHz and power fixed to 28 W...

The vibrational distribution function (VDF) of the N2(C 3Πu, v' = 0–4) state is analysed using optical emission spectroscopy in a nitrogen–argon (0–95% Ar) plasma sustained at a pressure of 400 Pa. A helical cavity is used as the plasma source with an excitation frequency of 27 MHz and power of 28 W. In the case of a pure nitrogen discharge, the N2...

A kinetic model is discussed for the two main emitting species (N2(B), N2(C)) of a N2-Ar plasma excited at 27 MHz by a helical cavity with operating pressure of 200 Pa. The present paper consistently illustrates, for miscellaneous Ar fractions and different positions, the great influence of the processes involving the metastable species (N2(A),...

This paper deals with a spectroscopic characterization of an Ar-H2O discharge excited by a helical cavity at 27 MHz. The power and the pressure are fixed to 30 W and 266 Pa, respectively. Emissions from Ar, H, O atoms and the OH(A2Σ+→X2Π) molecular spectral system are studied spatially along the discharge as a function of gas composition. Besides,...

The BH A 1Π → X 1Σ+ (0–0) transition was studied, in the emission mode, for gas temperature determination. Two typical conditions were used: doped diamond deposition conditions (H2/CH4/B2H6 99%:1%:0–100 ppm, from 2500 to 7550 Pa) and the vessel cleaning condition (H2, 85 Pa). Among the P, Q and R branches of the A 1Π → X 1Σ+ (0–0) transition, only...

The first absolute density measurement of N2(A 3Σ+u;v = 0) metastable molecules in the short-lived nitrogen afterglow of a 440 Pa microwave discharge is achieved by using a intracavity laser absorption spectroscopy technique. The results obtained show that this technique is very well suited for the diagnostics of N2(A 3Σ+u) in the nitrogen afterglo...

An original technique, using microwave plasmas in pure nitrogen and mixed with hydrogen, is implemented in the aim of surface nitridation of a sodium metaphosphate glass. The microwave discharges, ignited at pressures in the range of hundred Pa, are characterised by high concentrations of excited and ionised species. In the case of nitrogen plasmas...
