Paper Abstract

The experiments I want to talk about were published in steps over the years 1 . Improved diagnostics with subnanosecond time resolution now provide more detailed information about pulse shapes, liglatrise and time jitters. This has stimulated new interests for early spark channel development. The search for controlled highpower diffuse plasma presently is being organized in the puls-ower .prograrno Fast and low jitter switching appears a key application. Wanted is a plasma without a space charge controlled statistical streamer (Ii., .Haether), which determines spark breakdowns in many environments. The initial channel of the narrow gap "Na.noliten, however., appears to grow diffuse from both electrodes without streamer formation and no instabilities, as is demonstrated in Fig. 2°
