Main advantages of the wall-stabilized arc 5 very stable (as well spatially as temporally) long time of stable work (hours) cylindrical symmetry of the plasma uniformity of the plasma along the arc axis (neglecting infinitesimally small area near electrodes) the plasma is at least close to the Local Thermal Equilibrium

27
Demixing effect 27 Murphy has shown that in a mixture of two homonuclear gases that do not react with each other the treatment of diffusion can be greatly simplified if local chemical equilibrium is assumed. In this case, instead of considering the diffusion of individual species separately, one can consider the diffusion of gases. Here a gas, for example nitrogen, is defined to consist of all the species that can be derived from that gas, for example N 2, N 2 +, N, N +, N ++, and the electrons derived from the ionization of nitrogen molecules and atoms.

29
Demixing effect mole fraction (or partial pressure) gradient, Demixing can be caused by: frictional forces, thermal diffusion, external forces (e.g. electric field). 29
