Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The influence of a sound wave on the parameters of a gas discharge is investigated. The behavior of the electric field, the gas temperature in the discharge, and the electron temperature and density in the field of a sound wave is clarified. Modulation of the discharge current and electron density and temperature by a sound wave and the phase shift between oscillations of different plasma components are investigated, as well as modulation of the discharge current by a sound wave in a nitrogen discharge. The influence of sound on the contraction of a nitrogen discharge is also revealed.
