Original Abstract

This contribution presents experimental results obtained with underwater electric discharge created in rising gas bubbles. This discharge configuration is relatively new, and combines both gas and liquid phase discharges. The properties and mechanism of bubble discharge generation were investigated using a single pulsed high voltage. The electric discharge was generated in a pin-to-plate electrode configuration submerged in deionized water with conductivity of 2.0-5.0 microS/m. The gas bubbles were formed by injecting the gas through a glass filter disc at the bottom of the water tank. Air and helium were used as inlet gas. A spark gap pulse generator triggered the single negative high voltage pulses with rise times below 10 ns and peak voltages of 15-20 kV. The bubble position at the moment of high voltage application was accidental. The measured spectra were qualitatively reproducible, but significant quantitative differences were observed. We observed two types of discharge inside the bubble: delayed and direct spark discharge. The emission spectra of these two discharge kinds were qualitatively very similar.
