Ignition occurs when the heat produced by a reaction becomes sufficient to sustain the reaction, whether it be a fire, an explosion, or nuclear fusion. By analogy, the sudden change from a cold gas to a hot plasma in a plasma source is also called ignition. A large bonfire Fire is a form of combustion. ... The deuterium-tritium fusion reaction is considered the most promising for producing fusion power. ... Plasma sources generate plasmas. ...
In chemistry it refers to heating a material to the point that it spontaneously combusts.
An ignition system is a method for activating and controlling the combustion of fuel in an internal combustion engine. For a car, it is initiated by turning the car's key in a lock to start the engine.
In semiconductor processing, ignition is the process of starting up a plasma generator. In DC plasma systems, this involves a trasition from voltaic arcing to sustained and delocalized plasma generation. RF and microwave systems must produce sufficient power at the proper frequency to generate usable plasma, which generally requires some adjustment of the equipment.
