This Demonstration represents the most common types of plasma or plasma-like systems. The coordinates of the diagram are concentration (horizontal axis) and temperature (vertical axis), both on logarithmic scales. The locator can be moved to representative points of various types of plasma. The table below the diagram gives the most significant calculated parameters for the selected systems.
The plasma diagram is reproduced and redrawn, with permission, from: V. Covlea and H. Andrei, Diagnosticarea Plasmei—Lucrari de Laborator [in Romanian], Bucharest: Bucharest University Publishing House, 2001. The quantitative results for the plasma parameters are also taken from the cited book.
