Switching during pulsed breakdown of an air-filled gap in the nanosecond range

  • G. S. Korshunov


An experimental study has been made of the effect of various factors on the length and nature of the switching process during the pulsed breakdown of air-filled gaps in the nanosecond range. Practical recommendations are given for choosing optimum conditions for sharpening the pulse front.
