Exponential increase of ionisation degree above 30 000 K and breakdown of the assumption that nHII ≈ ne at high temperatures. Top: ionisation degree defined by nHII/nHI. Bottom: excess electrons. Number of free electrons per H II. This illustrates that the commonly used approximation for ionisation degree will overestimate the value of nHII at high temperatures.
