ON IONIZATION INSTABILITIES OF HIGH PRESSURE DISCHARGES

Abstract
Recently there was discovered an instability of high pressure discharges [1-3] but the mechanism of such instability has not been studied. This report is devoted to the experimental investigation of the instability in direct current arcs and in HF discharges [4] in H2, D2 and rare gases at pressures up to P=30 atm.
