An Experimental Test of the Streamer Breakdown Criterion
Australian Journal of Physics
23(6) 953 - 956
AbstractThe filamentary spark channel, resulting from the electrical breakdown of a gas, generally forms in one of two ways. At voltages close to the minimum breakdown potential the spark channel has been shown to develop from the constriction of the diffuse glow discharge formed from the superposition of many generations of electron avalanches (Cavenor and Meyer 1969).
