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.
