Abstract

We have experimentally investigated the affinity of streamers for dielectric surfaces using stroboscopic imaging and stereo photography. Affinity of streamers for dielectric surfaces was found to depend on a wide set of parameters, including pressure, voltage, dielectric material and discharge gap geometry. Our results show that higher relative permittivity, higher pressure, lower voltage, and asymmetrical sample placement increase the chance of the streamer following the dielectric surface.
