Re: Measuring Streamer characteristics
Original poster: "Dr. Resonance" <resonance-at-jvlnet-dot-com>
We looked at streamer formation once with a high speed camera (film type) at
it usually takes 150 to 200 uSec to get average peak length. This was over
12-15 cycles of 3 uSec burst peaks. Lots of ion formation is required to
grow the spark.
