The results of the computer simulation connected with the processes of the plasma sheath formation by the plasma source removed from the wall, have been experimentally verified. The parameters profiles of the “beam” plasma (an ionization is carried out by the low density electron beam; influence of the collective processes is negligible) and beam-plasma discharge (the ionization is carried out by plasma electrons heated by the development of the two-stream instability plays a key role) have been measured; qualitative comparison was made.
