Paper Abstract

There has been developed self-consistent kinetic model of a low pressure gas discharge inside a narrow channel. There has been studied the influence of spatial charge in positive column upon low temperature plasma instability by means of non-local theory. By means of modulating DC discharge with a weak harmonic signal followed by decoding plasma linear response on external influence was solved the problem of identifying various low-temperature plasma ionization instability manifestations with certain features of physical processes under conditions when discharges are used in helium- neon lasers. There has been executed a quantity comparison of theoretical and experimental results for glow discharges in narrow tubes, which were filled with helium or helium-neon mixtures.
