Data Base of plasma-chemical mechanism for simulation of the positive column of the glow discharge in the Ar-MeIn (Me= Tl,Bi,Ga,Sn,Zn,In) media.

This file contains data base of the mechanisms used for simulation of the properties of the glow discharge in the Ar-Metal-halide systems. Mechanisms include:

  • Set of the thermodynamic data of the species
  • Chemical mechanisms including reactions of excited atoms and molecules
  • Plasma chemical mechanism including e-atoms and molecules collision cross sections
  • Discharge parameters
  • Initial composition of the system

Mechanisms are realized as a collection of ready to use (calculations) projects in framework of the Chemical Work Bench 3.7 simulation environment. There are following projects:

  • Ar-TlI glow discharge
  • Ar-BiI3 glow discharge
  • Ar-GaI3 glow discharge
  • Ar-SnI2 glow discharge
  • Ar-ZnI2 glow discharge
  • Ar-InI/I3 glow discharge

Detailed information about mechanism properties and data used you may found in the paper (under publishing in PSST): “Comparative nonempirical analysis of emission properties of the Ar-MeIn glow discharge (Me=Ga, Zn, Sn, In, Bi, Tl)”.
