Double-Headed Streamer in Nitrogen

Application ID: 98181

This tutorial model presents a study of a double-headed streamer in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure. An initial seed of electrons is placed between two electrodes which apply an initial electric field of 52 kV/cm to the gas. A negative and positive streamer propagate toward the electrodes. The electron density, electric field, and the propagation velocity of the streamer agrees well with simulation results published by Bessières and others.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
