Uittreksel

Streamer discharges are efficient non-thermal plasmas for air purification and can be generated in wire-cylinder electrode structures (the plasma reactor). When (sub)nanosecond high-voltage pulses are used to generate the plasma, components like a plasma reactor behave as transmission lines, where transmission times and reflections become important. We want to visually study the influence of these transmission-line effects on the streamer development in the reactor. Therefore, we need a unique experimental setup, which allows us to image the streamers with nanosecond time resolution over the entire length of the plasma reactor. This paper describes the setup we developed for this purpose. The setup consists of a large frame in which a specially designed plasma reactor can be mounted and imaged from below by an intensified charge-coupled device (ICCD) camera. This camera is mounted on a platform which can be moved by a stepper motor. A computer automates all the experiments and controls the camera movement, camera settings, and the nanosecond high-voltage pulse source we use for the experiments. With the automated setup, we can make ICCD images of the entire plasma reactor at different instances of time with nanosecond resolution (with a jitter of less than several hundreds of picoseconds). Consequently, parameters such as the streamer length and width can be calculated automatically.
