HV, applied to a point cathode (radius of curvature ~1 to ~8 μm) in a nonpolar liquid, brings about a regular current pulse regime above a threshold value Vs. This regime is similar to the Trichel pulse regime for corona in air. We present results of an investigation of this threshold voltage Vs in argon over a wide range of densities.
