Abstract

In this contribution, a 2-temperature non-LTE model is used to investigate the role the channel radius plays in the plasma properties of a pulsed capillary discharge waveguide. An appropriate scaling of the current pulse amplitude has been derived and used throughout this work. It was found that the hollow electron density profile becomes steeper with decreasing radius. This leads to a smaller matched spot size for smaller capillaries.
