The alpha-gamma transition in an argon radio-frequency discharge has been measured using Langmuir probes and a current-voltage monitor. At two pressures, bi-Maxwellian electron energy distribution functions were measured in the gamma mode. Increasing the gas pressure results in a decrease in the high-energy component of the electron energy distribution function. A transition region in the current-voltage characteristic is also observed. (C) 1999 American Institute of Physics. [S0003-6951(99)04414-9].
