Characteristics of Capacity Coupled Discharge in Atmospheric Pressure Air
This paper describes characteristics of capacity coupled discharge in atmospheric pressure air with focusing influence of gap length of point-to-plane electrode configuration on input power into the discharge. The discharge can be quenched in short time duration by inserting a small capacitance capacitor between the electrode and the ground. We employed a needle electrode and a coaxial cable as the quenching capacitor. The discharge was successfully quenched within 25 ns in duration according to 9.4 pF in a capacitance of the quenching capacitor. The discharge was classified as two modes; a spark mode and a corona mode. At the spark mode, the power consumed in the discharge plasma was almost 10 times as large as that of a conventional dielectric barrier discharge. At the corona mode, the consumed energy was almost same value with that of the dielectric barrier discharge. A velocity of the discharge development was obtained to be 3×10<sup>5</sup> m/s by an optical measurement.
