On the ion drift in gas mixtures

  • S. A. Maiorov
Article

Abstract

The features of the velocity distribution function of ions during their drift in a mixture of different gases are analyzed. Examples of drift of heavy ions in light gas, a mixture of two gases with equal concentrations, and drift of light ions in heavy gas are considered. It was shown that the transition to discharge in mixtures of different gases allows the formation of an ion flux with characteristics unattainable for discharge in single-component gas under typical conditions under which experiments with dust structures in plasma are performed.
