    An electrode containing a layer of micrometer-sized ceramic powder was exposed to a low-pressure background argon plasma. Negative biasing of the electrode resulted in the formation of localized arcs which manifested attributes similar to that observed in vacuum cathode-spot discharges. The arcing action on the electrode in the presence of an applied magnetic field ejected particles and metal vapo... View full abstract»

    It has recently been demonstrated that pulsed direct-current (dc) voltages show better performance in generating diffuse plasmas under various conditions. However, it still remains unclear whether the pulsewidth or the rising and falling times of the voltage pulse play the essential role in the improvement of the performance of the dielectric barrier discharges (DBDs). In this paper, we focus on t... View full abstract»

    Plasma treatment affected the quality-related properties of wool fabric such as air permeability, pilling, tearing strength, tensile strength, crease-recovery angle, and surface luster which were studied thoroughly in this paper. The plasma gases with different natures were used, and the experimental results showed that the gas nature influenced the properties of air permeability, tearing strength... View full abstract»

    In this paper, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films are modified using nonequilibrium plasma generated by homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges (DBDs) in air at medium pressure, and the results are compared to those treated by using filamentary DBDs in air at atmospheric pressure. The characteristics of homogeneous DBDs are studied and compared with those of filamentary DBDs by measuring the... View full abstract»

    The application of cold plasma in sterilization of a root canal of a tooth has recently attracted great attention. In this paper, a reliable and user-friendly plasma-jet device, which can generate plasma inside the root canal, is reported. The plasma can be touched by bare hands and can be directed manually by a user to place it into root canal for disinfection without causing any painful sensatio... View full abstract»

    Two new electrode structures, namely, fence electrode (Fen) and combination of coplanar and fence electrodes (CoFen), employing an elevated bus electrode in the conventional surface discharge structure with three electrodes are suggested. In this paper, various comparisons between the conventional and two new structures are made to validate the effectiveness of the proposed structures. The firing ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the surface creepage of high-voltage self-breakdown switch which is used in 500 kV pulse modulator is analyzed in theory by employing the method of distributed element equivalent recurrent circuit. Moreover, the field distortion of the connecting ring of the switch is simulated by using software. According to the theoretical analysis, several methods to avoid surface creepage are ob...

    While Grover's tabular method to compute the mutual inductance of coaxial single-layer coils is convenient and fast when implemented on computer, its use has mostly been restricted to zeroth- and first-order calculations, since its accuracy is not well defined or quantified. This paper defines and quantifies the accuracy of Grover's tabular method for single-layer coaxial coils and shows that inte... View full abstract»

    The high-current diffuse column arc in vacuum consists of a bright central column of plasma, with some number of individual cathode spots burning on the remainder of the contact surface. The arc voltage imposed by the main column alters the plasma expansion and current flow of single jets burning alongside the column. Stable existence of the displaced single jets drives the transition into the hig... View full abstract»

    Before flashover across an insulator under high electric field in vacuum, there are charging phenomena occurring on the insulator surface, which significantly affect the developing process of flashover. Based on the secondary-electron-emission-avalanche model and by using the Monte Carlo method, a 2-D analysis of surface charge density on cylindrical and conical insulators prior to flashover in va...
