Terahertz absorption spectroscopy for measuring atomic oxygen densities in plasmas - Dataset

This data set contains the data shown in the corresponding publication in Plasma Sources Science and Technology (https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6595/acb815). This publication presents the first implementation of terahertz (THz) quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) for high-resolution absorption spectroscopy on plasmas. Absolute densities of ground state atomic oxygen were directly obtained by using the fine structure transition at approximately 4.75 THz.

Exploring the mechanisms leading to diffuse and filamentary modes in dielectric barrier discharges in N2 with N2O admixtures - Dataset

The effects of nitrous oxide (N2O) in nitrogen (N2) on the development and morphology of sine-driven dielectric barrier discharges in a single-filament arrangement were studied. Detailed insight in the characteristics of the discharge and its development were obtained from electrical measurements combined with ICCD and streak camera recordings as well as numerical modelling. A miniaturised atmospheric pressure Townsend discharge (APTD) could be generated for admixtures up to 5vol% N2O in N2 although N2O is an efficient collisional quencher of metastable nitrogen molecules.

Impact of the electrode proximity on the streamer breakdown and development of pulsed dielectric barrier discharges - Dataset

Presented data was obtained from the analysis of the impact of the electrode proximity on the streamer breakdown and development of pulsed-driven dielectric barrier discharges (DBDs) in a singlefilament arrangement in a gas mixture of 0.1 vol% O2 in N2 at 0.6 bar and 1.0 bar. The gap distance was varied from 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm, and the applied voltage was adapted correspondingly to create comparable breakdown conditions in the gap. Fast electrical measurements provided insight into discharge characteristics such as the transferred charge and consumed energy.
