Towards an understanding of the force low-temperature plasmas exert on walls — •Thomas Trottenberg and Holger Kersten — Institut für Experimentelle und Angewandte Physik, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, D-24098 Kiel

Low-temperature plasmas exert tiny forces (µN cm−2) on their solid bondaries. Recent force measurements, where small test surfaces were brought in contact with a plasma, have shown that the “plasma pressure” is in the order of magnitude of the electron pressure [1,2]. However, the measured forces range from significantly smaller forces up to a few times the electron pressure force. So far, only qualitative descriptions of the underlying mechanisms for this behavior could be presented [1,2]. A one-dimensional fluid model (including spherically symmetric geometry) was applied in a general treatment of the problem, and it was concluded that the pressure at the wall should equal the electron pressure in the center of the discharge [3]. However, the found systematic deviations remained unexplained. In this study, we provide a short summary of the experiments performed in Kiel so far with force measurements in capacitively-coupled radio-frequency discharges and microwave-generated plasmas, and we report on our latest attempts to understand the observed features of the force.
