The different effect of electricity upon gases and liquids has long been a subject of interest to physical inquirers. There are, as far as I am aware, no experiments which show any analogy in the electrization of gases to those effects now commonly comprehended under the term electrolysis. Whether gases at all conduct electricity, properly speaking, or whether its transmission is not always by the disruptive discharge, the discharge by convection, or something closely analogous, is perhaps a… Expand
Electric Discharge in Rarefied Gases: The Dominion of Experiment. Faraday. Plücker. Hittorf
The phenomena connected with the discharge of electricity through rarefied gases were observed shortly after the invention, in mid-17th century, of the air pump and the static electrical machine.1Expand
Fundamental Plasma Processes
When a sufficiently high voltage is applied across two electrodes immersed in a gaseous medium, atoms and molecules of that medium will break down electrically, forming electron-ion pairs andExpand
Contact glow discharge electrolysis: its origin, plasma diagnostics and non-faradaic chemical effects
Contact glow discharge electrolysis (CGDE) also termed plasma electrolysis is a novel electrolysis where a stable sheath of light emitting plasma develops around an electrode immersed well inside aExpand
Electrochemical discharges―Discovery and early applications
Electrochemical discharge phenomenon, as well known as plasma electrolysis, electrode effects or contact glow discharge electrolysis, was first described in literature more than 150 years ago. TodayExpand
Basics of Ultrathin Metal Films and Their Use as Transparent Electrodes
The beginning of “Thin Film Science” can possibly be traced back to the observation of Grove in 1852 who noted that metal films are formed by sputtering of cathodes with high energy positive ions.Expand
A Brief History of Cathodic Arc Coating
This chapter is unusually detailed and describes arc-related research over two and half centuries. Not only do the over 200 references of this chapter cover the well-known milestones of arc physicsExpand
First wall erosion due to the impact of energetic charged and neutral particles from the plasma on the first wall gives rise to the influx of impurity atoms into the plasma and, simultaneously,Expand
Thin Metal Films in Resistivity-based Chemical Sensing
Thin metal layers are widely utilized in a number of modern applications in electronics, optics, chemistry and many other applications. At present the thin layers of metals serve in applicationsExpand
Recent developments in plasma assisted physical vapour deposition
Recent developments in plasma assisted physical vapour deposition (PAPVD) processes are reviewed. A short section on milestones in advances in PAPVD covering the time period from 1938 when the firstExpand
