Imaging of dielectric surface flashover in atmospheric conditions

by J Krile, A Neuber, J Dickens, H Krompholz
IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science ()


Using a gated intensified digital charge coupled device (ICCD) camera, the development of flashovers across a dielectric surface has been imaged in various gasses at atmospheric pressures. The arc displayed a strong tendency to develop close to the surface, as opposed to following the electric field line leading away from the surface, when oxygen is present in the environment. These findings along with spectroscopy data help to yield a better understanding of the processes involved in surface flashover.
