Abstract

A report on the optical and electrical characteristics of cylindrical microdischarge devices with capacity diameters of 13-30 μm, fabricated in metal/polymer structures, was presented. Discharges in the rare gases exhibited intense ion emission at pressures above 1 atmosphere and molecular emission in the visible in Xe discharges was attributed to transitions between Xe2 excited states. Analysis showed that discharges in microcavities of dimensions below 50 μm represented a unique spectroscopic tool.
