This updated and revised second edition of Principles of Plasma Discharges for Materials Processing further extends the in-depth treatment of both basic plasma physics and industrial plasma processing originally presented in the very well received first edition. Along with comprehensive coverage of plasma fundamentals, the text also applies basic theory to plasma discharges, including calculations of plasma parameters and the scaling of plasma parameters with control parameters. This edition includes new chapters on dusty plasmas and the kinetic theory of discharges; it also covers recent developments and further clarifies the presentation of basic principles.

From the Preface: “This book discusses the fundamental principles of partially ionized, chemically reactive plasma discharges and their use in thin-film processing. Plasma processing is a high-technology discipline born out of the need to access a parameter space in materials processing unattainable by strictly chemical methods. The field is interdisciplinary, combining the areas of plasma physics, surface science, gas-phase chemistry, and atomic and molecular physics. The common theme is the creation and use of plasmas to activate a chain of chemical reactions at a substrate surface. Our treatment is mainly restricted to discharges at low pressures, <1 Torr, which deliver activation energy, but not heat, to the surface...”

Target Audience: Students and practicing professionals — across a broad spectrum of technological disciplines — who are interested in plasma processing and materials modification.
