Title: Dielectric breakdown properties of N{sub 2}–O{sub 2} mixtures by considering electron detachments from negative ions

Abstract

The paper analyzes the dielectric breakdown properties of N{sub 2}–O{sub 2} mixtures at different O{sub 2} concentrations and gas pressures, taking into account electron detachments from negative ions. The reduced effective ionization coefficients α(eff)/N in N{sub 2}–O{sub 2} mixtures at different O{sub 2} concentrations and gas pressures were calculated and analyzed, by considering electron detachments. The critical reduced electric fields (E/N){sub cr} and the critical electron temperature T{sub b} were then determined. The result indicates a clear enhancement of α(eff)/N by collisional detachments, which causes a reduction in the (E/N){sub cr}. In addition, a synergistic effect in the N{sub 2}–O{sub 2} mixture was also observed in both (E/N){sub cr} and T{sub b}. The value of T{sub b} was decreased by the increase of pd product, however, T{sub b} tended to be constant at relatively high pd products.
