Abstract: Dielectric Barrier Discharges (DBDs) are traditionally driven by sinewave voltages with magnitudes in the kV range and frequencies in the kHz range. Depending on the operating parameters, DBDs can generate either filamentary or diffuse plasmas. Both types of discharge have been found useful for a variety of applications, such as ozone generation [I], W radiation sources [2], and biological sterilization [3]. To improve the energy transfer efficiency, pulsed voltages with sub-microsecond pulse rise and fall ti…
