A stable nonthermal quasiuniform planar plasma jet, originating from a planar dielectric duct with a rectangular exit and issuing into ambient air at atmospheric pressure, is reported in the present work. Current-voltage characteristics, one discharge current pulse per sinusoidal half voltage cycle, show that the discharge is not filamentary. Its spatial uniformity in the transverse direction is shown to be excellent by monitoring optical emission spectra in the jet core region except jet boundaries. This is possibly resulted from high preionization in the upstream region, and it is a challenge to the traditional single streamer explanation for nonthermal plasma jets.
