LXCat: An Open-Access, Web-Based Platform for Data Needed for Modeling Low Temperature Plasmas
MetadataShow full item record
LXCat is an open-access platform (www.lxcat.net) for curating data needed for modeling the electron and ion components of technological plasmas. The data types presently supported on LXCat are scattering cross sections and swarm/transport parameters, ion-neutral interaction potentials, and optical oscillator strengths. Twenty-four databases contributed by different groups around the world can be accessed on LXCat. New contributors are welcome; the database contributors retain ownership and are responsible for the contents and maintenance of the individual databases. This article summarizes the present status of the project. © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
