Discharge dynamics and characteristics of atmospheric glow discharge excited by sub-microsecond high voltage pulses
A study of sub-microsecond high voltage pulse excited glow discharges in atmospheric helium is carried out here. The discharge is generated between the powered copper electrode and ground electrode covered with a ceramic sheet. The electrical and optical characteristics of two discharge events in each voltage pulse in terms of discharge current amplitude, current pulse duration, time instant at current peak and accumulated charge in discharge are investigated on voltage pulse duration and pulse voltage magnitude. The time-resolved imaging with 5 ns exposure time is used to demonstration the spatio-temporal evolution of discharge. It is found that the first discharge depends markedly on pulse voltage magnitude and space charge accumulation on ceramic sheet surface plays an important role on ignition of second discharge.
