Plasma deionization features in gas discharge device

Vladimir F. Anisimov, Alexander S. Arefev


Results of plasma excess conductivity investigations of gas discharge device under conditions of plasma decay have been presented. This case involves the need of taking into account the recombination of charged particles both on the device electrodes and in its volume. It was established that the volume recombination of charged particles at the stage of plasma excess conductivity materially affects the duration of plasma excess conductivity and modifies the pattern of its decay.
