Paper Abstract

The results of the experimental investigations of the discharge in Ne/SF6/CH4 and Ne/SF6 mixtures are presented. It has been found, that the discharge has a tendency to expand over the total electrode area. The discharge current shape remains aperiodic at the different initial conditions. The experiments have detected an interesting effect. The discharge current changes the polarity at the remaining positive discharge voltage. The possible explanation of this fact is given. The stages of the development of the inhomogeneities in Ne/SF6 mixtures are described. The influence of the total pressure of the mixture has been studied.
