Abstract

A model is presented for the radial distribution of ion and electron densities and electric field strength in the positive column of a dc discharge for a plasma consisting of a singly charged positive-ion species, electrons, and neutral species. The set of equations involved consists of the particle- and momentum-conservation equations for the ions and electrons and Poisson.
