Abstract

We simulate streamers in air at standard temperature and pressure in a short overvolted gap. The simulation is performed with a 3-D hybrid model that traces the single electrons and photons in the low-density region while modeling the streamer interior as a fluid. The photons are followed by a Monte Carlo procedure, just like the electrons. First simulation results are presented here.
