A contribution to the technique of investigating spiralling discharges

  • 9 Accesses


The paper describes experimental investigations of an impulsive discharge of spiralling character. The dependence is given of the change of the spiralling discharge shape on the width of the impulsive discharge. It is pointed out that this dependence may serve as part of the technique of investigating spiralling discharges and the constricted positive column of a glow discharge.
