Electrical conductivity of partially ionized NaCs plasma mixtures
Abstract
The electrical conductivity of partially ionized sodiumcesium plasmas is calculated starting from the electron kinetic equation taking into account the electronelectron, electronion and the elastic electronatom scattering. The transport cross sections follow from the scattering phase shifts solving the corresponding Schrödinger's equation with effective interaction potentials. In order to calculate the plasma composition a coupled law of mass action is used. The electrical conductivity of the plasma mixture is then discussed for densities 1016…1021 cm−3 and for temperatures 3000 K… 10000 K.
