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 , and biological sterilization . To improve the energy transfer efficiency, pulsed voltages with sub-microsecond pulse rise and fall ti…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
