Abstract: Glow discharge detectors can be a good alternative to existing Schottky diodes, Golay cells and pyroelectric detectors because they are inexpensive and can detect mm-wave and sub-mm radiation successfully. This detection occurs as a result of the interaction of the radiation with the electrons in the plasma. It is required to understand this interaction mechanism to obtain optimum detection parameters. Previous methods have focused on understanding the interaction using analytical models, where the radiation is generally thought to increase the collision frequency of electrons in the plasma, however these theories were not tested against real discharge parameters. For that reason, in this study, the plasma formed inside the detector is simulated by using parallel 1d3v PIC/MCC code, which was previously developed (Kusoglu-Sarikaya et al., 2016) to better understand how the glow discharge forms under different pressure and gas concentrations. The effectiveness of the simulation is compared with mm-wave experiments performed on both commercially obtained and home-built glow discharge detectors. Initial results show that the 1d3v PIC/MCC code can simulate the discharge parameters that are observed in the measurements. Using this platform future studies will focus on understanding the effect of the sub-THz radiation on the collision frequency and observed parameters of the discharge. (More)
