Species which can only exist in low-energy plasma have a significant impact on the plasma's unique properties; this is one of the reasons why plasma processes need data on complete chemistry sets to be reliable.There is so much going on in a plasma that chemistries need to include both processes between feedstock gases and the products of their reactions with surfaces. So in order to have a complete chemistry set, you need information on electron collision processes as well as heavy particle collisions and surface reactions. That is all well and good, but actually calculating cross sections is not an easy task.
We are pleased to now announce the release of our recent publication: QDB: a new database of plasma chemistries and reactions. The database is designed to save time and presents plasma chemistry data in a user friendly fashion. Proactive customer support is also available for subscribers, and we can’t wait to hear from you!
