Title: Switching characteristics of microplasmas in a planar electrode gap

Abstract

Microplasmas at high pressure have been the authors' special interest for its practical relevance to the development of a switch. They concentrated on repetitive switching with a possibility to exceed the up to now known values for plasma closing switches and simultaneously maintaining a subnanosecond rise time of the switched pulses at a load. They examined several parameters for this purpose such as the electrode gap spacing, the electrode geometry, the gas type, the gas pressure, and including the applied voltage and current rating to operate these plasmas.
