Abstract: In this letter, the authors present an experimental study of the temporal characteristics of submicrosecond pulsed atmospheric glow discharges. Using electrical measurements and nanosecond-resolved optical emission spectroscopy, they show that a long initial period of each voltage pulse is spent building up space charges and is then followed by a large current pulse in the voltage-falling phase. Reactive plasma species such as oxygen atoms and OH radicals are produced in a train of sharp and independent pulses of 50–100 ns wide. Finally, their production is shown to increase significantly as the voltage pulse width reduces or the repetition frequency increases.
