Abstract: In this letter, basic characteristics of glow modes and their mode transition are studied for radio-frequency rf atmospheric argon discharges with bare and dielectrically insulated electrodes. Through input power control, large-volume rf atmospheric argon discharges with bare electrodes are achieved in the mode via an abrupt transition from a constricted mode, whereas dielectrically insulated electrodes result in large argon discharges in both the and modes with gradual mode transition. Current dependence of the 750 nm line intensity and of the gas temperature are shown to capture clearly the signature of mode transition.
