Abstract

A fluid model was developed to reproduce propagation of a microwave plasma under an external magnetic field when it was coupled with an electromagnetic wave propagation. A consistency between the fluid and particle models was obtained because the transport coefficient used in the fluid model was assessed by the particle model. An electron number density increases by applying the magnetic field because of the Lorentz force effect. Propagation speed of the plasma front becomes slower when the magnetic field is applied to the discharge domain because the electron diffusion is suppressed.
