Oxygen Boltzmann Analysis

Application ID: 8625


The Boltzmann equation can be solved to validate sets of electron impact collision cross sections. In fact, sets of collision cross sections are traditionally inferred by solving a two-term approximation to the Boltzmann equation and comparing the results to swarm experiments. This model solves a two-term approximation to the Boltzmann equation and compares the computed drift velocity and electron temperature to experimental data.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
