Process of F<sup>-</sup> ion formation is examined in a surface flashover plasma initiated on the CF<sub>2</sub> cathode of an MID by an auxiliary coaxial Marx generator. Off-diode optical measurements of FI, FII and H<sub>β</sub> show that a maximum density of the order of 10 cm for F atoms is achieved several hundred ns after the initiation of the… CONTINUE READING
