Observation of Discharge Instability Induced by Shockwave in Self-Sustained High-Pressure Pulsed Glow Discharge

Abstract

Self-sustained high-pressure pulsed glow discharge is applied to excitation discharge on transversely excited atmospheric (TEA) gas lasers. Influence of shockwaves with Mach number M<sub>S</sub> of 1.1 and 1.35 on the discharge has been investigated. The normal Shockwave, which is normal to gas flow direction in TEA gas lasers, is produced by a shock tube… (More)
