Honour of research of project A5

Project A5 on the Inside Front Cover of Plasma Processes and Polymers

The current issue (April 2021) of Plasma Processes and Polymers features work from project A5 of the CRC 1316 on the topic of "positive and negative streamer propagation in volume dielectric barrier discharges with planar and porous electrodes" on its inside front cover.

The scientists have found that the discharge characteristics of negative surface streamers differ significantly from those of positive surface streamers. While negative streamers develop along the dielectric surface, allowing them to propagate into much smaller dielectric pores, positive streamers floatingly develop above the dielectric.
