Paper Abstract

According to the quasi-neutrality equation, the law of partial pressure, pressure equation, Saha equation and the principle of superposition on plasma refractive index, the Ar, He plasma's electron density, atom density, ion density and the variation of refractive index with changing of temperature are calculated when the pressure is 1,3,5,7 atm. respectively. Moreover it is analyzed that Ar, He plasma act on CO2 laser beam welding from the point of view that plasma and laser affect each other.
