Adopting a classical ideal gas model and using the measured concentration of electrons, we estimated that the ionization degree in plasma was about ~[10.sup.-4].
Ionization degree of metal atoms and flux fraction of metal ions can reach very high values during IPVD.
Figure 2(b) shows the development of ionization degree. As long as the electron temperatures are similar for both cases (small amount of metal), aluminium is significantly more ionized.
