Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors have done an excellent job…this is a good book for an academic course that will provide the foundation to senior-level and graduate students…" (MRS Bulletin, November2005)

From the Back Cover

A Thorough Update of the Industry Classic on Principles of Plasma Processing

The first edition of Principles of Plasma Discharges and Materials Processing, published over a decade ago, was lauded for its complete treatment of both basic plasma physics and industrial plasma processing, quickly becoming the primary reference for students and professionals.

The Second Edition has been carefully updated and revised to reflect recent developments in the field and to further clarify the presentation of basic principles. Along with in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of plasma physics and chemistry, the authors apply basic theory to plasma discharges, including calculations of plasma parameters and the scaling of plasma parameters with control parameters.

New and expanded topics include:

  • Updated cross sections
  • Diffusion and diffusion solutions
  • Generalized Bohm criteria
  • Expanded treatment of dc sheaths
  • Langmuir probes in time-varying fields
  • Electronegative discharges
  • Pulsed power discharges
  • Dual frequency discharges
  • High-density rf sheaths and ion energy distributions
  • Hysteresis and instabilities
  • Helicon discharges
  • Hollow cathode discharges
  • Ionized physical vapor deposition
  • Differential substrate charging

With new chapters on dusty plasmas and the kinetic theory of discharges, graduate students and researchers in the field of plasma processing should find this new edition more valuable than ever.

Format: Hardcover
One of the most practical and comprehensive resources on plasma phyics and engineering. The book is much easier to understand and more in depth than most other books on the subject, except for maybe chen (who takes more of a physics approach, whereas lieberman takes more of an engineering approach) This book is a must have for anyone working with or studying plasmas.
