Effect of Secondary Electron Emission on the Glow Discharges with Different Electrode Gaps

서로 다른 전극간격에서 이차전자 방출이 글로우 방전에 미치는 영향에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2009.04.01


In this paper, the effect of the secondary electron emission coefficient of Xe ion on glow discharge was examined by ID numerical simulation. The simulation was performed for two distinct structures, short and long gaps. The features of the glow discharges in the both structures, firing and sustain voltages, luminance, and efficiency, were analyzed at various secondary electron emission coefficient of Xe ion.
