Figure 4

Normalized spatio-temporal plots of the electron impact excitation rate from the ground state into He I3S1 obtained experimentally (first row) and from PIC/MCC simulations, for different numbers of consecutive harmonics (‘peaks’-waveform). The positions of the sheath edges are shown as a solid white line (second row). The data are plotted for different driving voltage waveforms shown in row 3. The fourth row shows EEPFs averaged over different spatio-temporal regions of interest marked in row 2. The black solid line corresponds to the EEPF averaged over the entire electrode gap and RF period of the fundamental driving frequency. The fifth row shows the time averaged helium metastable density profile extracted from the PIC/MCC simulation. The powered electrode is located at x = 0, while the grounded electrode is at x = 1mm. The base frequency is f = 13.56MHz, the flow ratio is He/N2 = 1000/1 (1 sccm N2 flow).
