3D ICP Reactor, Argon Chemistry

Application ID: 8661


3D plasma modeling is possible to do in COMSOL. A square coil is placed on top of a dielectric window and is electrically excited at 13.56MHz. A plasma is formed in the chamber beneath the dielectric window, which contains Argon gas at low pressure (20 mtorr). The gas flows into the process chamber from two 2 inch ports and the gas is extracted through a single 4 inch port. The plasma is sustained via electromagnetic induction where power is transferred from the electromagnetic fields to the electrons.

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