The Boltzmann Equation, Two-Term Approximation Interface
When modeling plasma, you sometimes want to define the electron transport properties as a function of the electron energy. The Boltzmann Equation, Two-Term Approximation interface does just that.
Introduction to Plasma Modeling with Non-Maxwellian EEDFs
Modeling plasma that has a non-Maxwellian electron energy distribution function (EEDF) results in a catch-22. However, this issue can be overcome by building a simulation application.
Thermodynamic Equilibrium of Plasmas
Are you interested in modeling plasmas with the COMSOL® software? Get an overview of the different plasma types and when to use each of the interfaces available in the Plasma Module.
Ion Temperature in Inductively Coupled Plasmas (ICPs)
When modeling plasmas, your choice of ion temperature can affect your model results. We discuss the theoretical reasons behind this phenomenon using an inductively coupled plasma example.
Electron Energy Distribution Function
The electron energy distribution function (EEDF) strongly influences the results of a plasma model. But what are some ways we can numerically describe the EEDF in the COMSOL® software?
