Abstract : Clean-up and thermal recovery of inert gases at the interface between a high-power microwave discharge and a quartz surface have been further investigated. Using representative gas samples, the square root clean-up rate was found to be independent of fill pressures in the .5 Torr to 5 Torr range. The square root clean-up rate was observed to increase linearly with the square root of the incident peak power. Neon was ound to have an activation energy of 11.3 KCal/mole for diffusion in quartz.
