Abstract

A LTE chemical model is developed to determine the plasma composition and transport coefficients of a thallium iodide discharge. Collision integrals, diffusion coefficients, thermal and electrical conductivity as well as conductance have been computed as functions of temperature at different atomic ratios using the Chapman Enskog theory. This chemical model is then coupled with a one-dimensional time-dependent fluid model to describe the temperature variation and electrical behaviour of the lamp.
