Argon-Oxygen Post-Discharge Treatment of Hexatriacontane: Heat Transfer between Gas Phase and Sample
Characterization of the interaction between an argon-oxygen post-discharge and hexatriacontane (C36H74) is carried out. Optical emission spectroscopy using the atmospheric band O2 (b1Σg +, v=0 X3Σg −, v’=0) at 760 nm gives simultaneously the evolution of the O(3P) concentration above the surface and the gas temperature by simulation of the rotational spectrum of the transition. Surface reactions contribute to the heating in the sample and to a substantial increase in the gas temperature. Finally, a strong correlation between the time evolutions of the transition intensity and the sample temperature is observed, suggesting that O(3P) is the main reactive species that produces the heating and the chemical changes in the HTC.
