Microphysical description of the weakly ionized nitrogen molecule plasma of the positive column of glow discharges. II  Calculation of transport quantities, collision frequencies, and energy loss rates of the electrons in the molecular nitrogen plasma and comparison with experiment
Abstract
The present work continues the author's previous work (1973) on calculations and experimental verification of the isotrope section of the velocity distribution function for a weakly ionized, uniform, stationary N2 plasma, and gives the results of calculations of transport quantities, collision frequencies, and energy loss rates of the electrons in the reduced field strength region of 1 to 100 V/cm torr. Calculated and experimental values are compared in terms of the characteristic energy (ratio of diffusion coefficient to mobility), drift velocity, and the Townsend ionization coefficient of the electrons.
