Modélisation d'une décharge DC pulsée dans l'azote : simulations numériques à l'aide d'un code couplant la dynamique des particules chargées à celle du gaz neutre : comparaisons avec l'expérience

Abstract : This work deals the modeling of a dc pulsed diode type discharge used for iron and steel nitriding. The present research aimed at a better understanding of the processes occuring in such plasmas in order to attain an optimization of the surface treatment process. In a first stage we adapted an existing electrical modeling to the experimental results obtained from electrostatic probe and emission spectroscopy measurements. These preliminary results showed a roughly good agreement between the modeling and the experiment and pointed out the limits of this simulation. Two improvements have thus been made to this basic model: a better description of the electron population using a monoenergetic electron beam ; a coupling with a modeling of the neutral gas dynamics. The first improvement led to a better description of the various regions of the discharge (in particular the negative glow) and to get an excellent agreement between numerical and experimental results in the case of short duration impulse discharges. The second improvement showed the importance and the need for taking into account the heating of neutral gas in the case of discharge on-time greater than a few hundreds of microseconds.
