Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A two-dimensional, axially symmetric, inductive discharge over a wide range of argon pressure and plasma density is described. The Maxwell equations for the different harmonics in the vector potential are solved using finite difference. The kinetic equations for both electrons and ions are solved using Monte Carlo approach.
