An open-access website for collecting, displaying, and downloading electron and ion scattering cross sections for modeling low temperature plasmas.
The Plasma Data Exchange Project is a community-based project which was initiated as a result of a public discussion held at the 2010 Gaseous Electronics Conference (GEC), a leading international meeting for the Low-Temperature Plasma community. This project aims to address, at least in part, the well-recognized needs for the community to organize the means of collecting, evaluating and sharing data both for modeling and for interpretation of experiments.
At the heart of the Plasma Data Exchange Project is LXCat (pronounced "elecscat"), an open-access website for collecting, displaying, and downloading electron and ion scattering cross sections, swarm parameters (mobility, diffusion coefficient, etc.), reaction rates, energy distribution functions, etc. and other data required for modeling low temperature plasmas. The available data bases have been contributed by members of the community and are indicated by the contributor's chosen title.
New tools for researchers in plasma, combustion and chemical reactor science
