Abstract

A monolithic linear microdischarge array having seven segments and an overall active length of ∼1 cm was fabricated in a ceramic multilayer structure. The length of the seven-section device was more than an order of magnitude larger than those for previous arrays of coaxial microdischarge devices. The pulsed and continuous wave operation of the array for Xe pressures as large as 700 Torr was also demonstrated.
