This research investigates the effect of Argon (Ar) and Neon (Ne) injection on the plasma parameters in the end-cell of GAMMA 10/PDX numerically by using a multi-fluid code. Reduction in the temperature of the electrons and ions is observed according to the increment of impurity injection. The electron density and the particle flux show tendency of roll-over phenomena for Ar injection. Temperature reduction in the electrons and ions during Ar injection is higher than those of the Ne injection. It is also observed that the charge-exchange (CX) loss and radiative power loss for Ar injection is higher than that of the Ne injection. These outcomes indicate that Ar is more effective radiative gas for generating detached plasma.
