Photoionization Model for the Transition to Fast Mode Streamers in Dielectric Liquids

Photoionization Model for the Transition to Fast Mode Streamers in Dielectric Liquids

Category
Part of a book/report
Abstract
The transition to fast mode streamers is explained through a model that includes a photoionization mechanism. The model assumes that photons are created in the head of the streamer, and that the photoionization cross section is dependent on the electric field through field dependent ionization potential. The transition in speed occurs when radiation from the most active electronically excited state can cause ionization.
