A Thorough Update of the Industry Classic on Principles of Plasma Processing

The first edition of Principles of Plasma Discharges and Materials Processing, published over a decade ago, was lauded for its complete treatment of both basic plasma physics and industrial plasma processing, quickly becoming the primary reference for students and professionals.

The Second Edition has been carefully updated and revised to reflect recent developments in the field and to further clarify the presentation of basic principles. Along with in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of plasma physics and chemistry, the authors apply basic theory to plasma discharges, including calculations of plasma parameters and the scaling of plasma parameters with control parameters.

New and expanded topics include:

Updated cross sections

Diffusion and diffusion solutions

Generalized Bohm criteria

Expanded treatment of dc sheaths

Langmuir probes in time-varying fields

Electronegative discharges

Pulsed power discharges

Dual frequency discharges

High-density rf sheaths and ion energy distributions

Hysteresis and instabilities

Helicon discharges

Hollow cathode discharges

Ionized physical vapor deposition

Differential substrate charging

With new chapters on dusty plasmas and the kinetic theory of discharges, graduate students and researchers in the field of plasma processing should find this new edition more valuable than ever.
