Glow Discharge Enhancement by Shock Waves

Published Online: 2014-06-02 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/zna-1984-0705

The effect of shock waves on the glow discharge is investigated experimentally. A fast electric discharge is generated across a shock wave for this purpose. The lower pressure around the cathode in front of the shock wave enables electrons to strongly diffuse radially, and therefore the glow is maintained with little constriction even at high average pressures. Moreover, the glow diameter, discharge fluorescence and current are enhanced by the shock wave.
