Ultrafast Nanosecond Imaging of Non-thermal Plasmas with Multiple emICCD Cameras

Researchers from Kumamoto University in Japan are studying streamer discharge, where voltage difference is applied across an insulating gas or air. The researchers characterized these using four PI-MAX4 emICCDs to image generated streamers on the nanosecond timescale. This allowed them to characterize their size as well as propagation distance and velocity……Find out more
