    A hollow-cathode lamp (HCL) is type of cold cathode lamp used in physics and chemistry as a spectral line source (for example, in atomic absorption spectrometers) and as a frequency tuner for light sources such as HCL takes advantage of the hollow cathode effect, which causes conduction at a lower voltage and with more current than a cold cathode lamp that does not have a hollow cathode.   Decreasing the pressure in the hollow cathode discharge, simultaneously ensuring room for the expanding negative glow, allows the discharge to transit, from the hollow cathode type into a high voltage discharge where the cathode cavity is filled with the cathode glow. Such an arrangement seems to be very effective for endoergic charge transfer excitation as it was observed in a He-Cu : K. Rózsa, P. Mezei, P. Apai, M. Jánossy, S. Chinen, F. Howorka, I. Kuen, M.

Both discharges have similar voltage - current characteristics which are responsible for their radiation stability.

Microhollow electrode discharges, discharges between thin metal foils with submillimeter gap and submillimeter holes in cathode and anode, show three distinct modes of operation: (a) at low currents the predischarge mode, a glow discharge between the outer faces of the hollow electrodes, (b) at higher current a phase with increased ionization due to ``pendulum`` electrons in the cathode hole.

Get this from a library. Hollow cathode operation at high discharge currents. [Verlin Joe Friedly; Lewis Research Center.]. measured on axis in the NEXIS hollow cathode at 25 A of discharge current.

The structure of the hollow cathode serves three main functions. First, some fraction of the thruster propellant is injected through the hollow cathode, and the discharge inside the resulting high neutral pressure region generates a cold, high-density plasma.

The principle of the hollow cathode discharge is to wrap the cathode around as much of the discharge volume as possible, thereby increasing the extent of the negative glow region and hence the number of ions formed in the discharge.

Van den Heuvel and Dymanus published an effective design [8] which has since been copied by many other is shown in Figure 3. Plasma Emission Characteristics From a High Current Hollow Cathode in an Ion Thruster Discharge Chamber John E.

Hollow cathode discharges: Low and high-pressure operation researchers have applied these microplas mas to other fields, e.g., materials processing such as local et ching or deposit ion [ electrons in the discharge.

The breakdown voltage for a hollow cathode discharge in helium was calculated and compared to that of a glow discharge under similar conditions.

Hollow cathode discharges break down at lower volt- ages and carry order of magnitude higher currents com. Up to pressure times cathode hole diameter (pD) values of approximately 5 Torr cm, and at sub-mA currents, glow discharges (predischarges) are observed with a shape which is determined by the vacuum electric field.

In the same pD range, but at higher currents of up to approximately 4 mA, the discharges are of the hollow cathode discharge by: potential and temperature for different discharge currents and gas flow rates.

This data aids in a basic understanding of the hollow cathode physics and will ultimately assist in determining cathode life. Probing of thermionic hollow cathodes has been performed since they were invented by Lidsky1 in the A source for the continous production of neutral metastable atoms is described.

A hollow cathode discharge tube was used to produce densities of x 10/sup 13/ cm/sup -3/ and column densities of x 10/sup 15/ c cm/sup -2/ in the 4s/sup 2/ /sup 2/D metastable term of neutral copper. operating pressure during no-gas-flow cathode experiments is in the high Torr range.

pD is Torr cm. The upper value of hollow cathode discharge operation is at a pD on the order of 10 Torr cm.4 Typically hollow cathode discharges are operated at sub-Torr pressures and cathode diameters in the centimeter range.

Experiments at higher pressures ~p Torr. in noble gases have been performed by Sturges and Oskam5 with parallel. greatly increased, and the discharge oscillations inherent in plume mode have been linked to cathode erosion and thruster instabilites.2 In order to develop design tools, an initial experimental investigation was conducted using laboratory model cathodes to determine the similarities and differences of low-power hollow cathode operation withFile Size: 2MB.

Compared to parallel plate electrodes, using a hollow cathode increases the current density by more than 10 times and this is accompanied by a significant increase in light emission intensity and a lower voltage drop in the lamp. The hollow cathode consists of two parallel aluminum plates and the discharge gas was a mixture of argon and nitrogen within the pressure range of 10 to 50 Pa.

A Helmholtz coil was used to produce a low intensity and uniform B-field along the axis of the discharge, within the range of (0 – 30) T. The discharge voltage was in the range of. A hollow cathode discharge cell has been developed for a variety of sample phases.

To make the experimental apparatus compact, we have adopted DC discharge, and the discharge cell was inexpensively constructed for replacement with commercially available vacuum parts. The most distinctive attribute of the developed cell is the double structure of the : Daisuke Ishikawa, Shuichi Hasegawa.

Selection of a Baseline Hollow Cathode We select a baseline hollow cathode design that has shown potential to reach high currents and long lifetimes. We will use this baseline as a basis for our calculations as well as a benchmark in future work. To select a baseline cathode type, a succinct review is useful to understand how emitters work.
