Abstract

In this paper we present experimental results on how the properties of positive, pulsed streamers in air depend on E/n (E is the applied electric field and n is the gas density). Streamers are generated in a wire-cylinder reactor at constant voltage (so constant E). The density is changed either by varying the temperature (20-500 oC) at constant pressure (1000 mbar), or by varying the pressure (379-1000 mbar) at constant temperature (ambient temperature). A fast ICCD-camera (200 ps shutter-time) is used to analyze the spatial and temporal development of the streamers.
