Modelling anode spots in a DC glow discharge

Beautiful patterns on anodes of DC glow discharges have been observed for over a century. In addition to being of significant theoretical interest by themselves, self-organized patterns on liquid anodes of atmospheric pressure glow microdischarges reveal a non-trivial cancer-inhibiting capability.

Our goal was to compute self-organized patterns of spots on a flat metallic anode of a glow(...)

Bifurcations in the theory of current transfer to cathodes of dc discharges and transitions between different modes

Concentration of electrical current onto the surface of electrodes of gas discharges in well-defined regions, or current spots, is often the rule rather than the exception. These spots occur on otherwise uniform electrode surfaces, a regime where one might expect a un(...)

Modelling of plasma-electrode interaction in high-pressure arc discharge

Efficient methods of modelling of electric arcs in high-pressure environment are of high importance for many technical devices, and the interaction of arc plasmas with electrodes, in the first place, the cathode, is currently a bottleneck. This explains a surge of interest in plasma-electrode interaction inhigh-pressure arc discharges in the scientific community that has occurred over the past couple o(...)
