An Investigation into the application of Carbon Films to Triggered Vacuum Gap switches

Applied Electromagnetism, Plasma and Space Science

his project aims to investigate the characteristics of the plasma generated by the use of a carbon films in a Triggered Vacuum Gap. Various different types of carbon film with different thicknesses and preparation techniques will be used to obtain the required data. This should allow for future devices to be engineered to more efficient designs with the increased understanding of the physical mechanics involved with the operation of this kind of device.
