Where the resistivity of a precipitated layer of dust exceeds a value in the neighborhood of 108 Ωm, the phenomenon of back corona generally occurs. The fact that this is not always the case, however, shows that the phenomenon is not perfectly understood. In 1965, the author introduced to the theory the additional factor of the dielectric constant. This had the effect of making relaxation ... View full abstract»
