Abstract:

We report novel measurement techniques and also validate other methods which permit to make absolute quantitative measurement of gas temperature, radical density, UV intensities, plasma power deposition efficiency, sheath electric field, ionic and neutral species formed by electron and photon energy transfer to the medium. The quantitative measurements include hair pin resonator for electron density, diode laser absorption for metastable line density, two-photon laser induced fluorescence LIF for atom density measurement, and mass spectrometric measurements.
