Abstract
The decay processes of the plasma layers generated by two intersecting microwave pulses in 1 torr dry air are investigated by Bragg scattering method. The results of measurement show that the electrons decay initially at the three-body attachment rate. However, when enough negative molecule ions are produced through the electron attachment process, the regeneration of electrons via detachment process is increased and eventually balances out the electron attachment loss. The net electron loss is then dominated by the recombination process.
