Accurate local measurements of electron densities in reactive discharges using FIR interferometry are possible down to a density of 1.0 E16/m3. Determination of the distribution of atomic or molecular species by means of absolute line intensity emission measurements to derive T(e) has proven to be difficult, even if extended collisional radiative models are used and electron densities are adapted from experiments.
