Large starting voltages in metal halide lamps result in sputtering of the electrodes and reduced lamp life. A two-dimensional plasma hydrodynamics model was used to investigate breakdown in metal halide lamp. Images depicting the progress of the breakdown in Ar during cold startup are presented.
Atmospheric pressure plasma treatment of polymers is routinely used to improve surface properties such as adhesion and wettability. These changes in properties occur by functionalization of the surface by radicals and ions generated in the plasma, typically oxidizing the surface and increasing surface energy. One such device used, a dielectric barrier… (More)
