RESEARCH EMPHASIS:

My research emphasis is in the area of electrical breakdown waves. Electrical breakdown is a progressive wave phenomenon described by fluid-dynamical equations that relate primarily to electron gas. If a contained volume of plasma is subjected to an electric field, a Debye sheath layer will form. Excess charges of one polarity create a space charge field in the layer which cancels out the applied field, so that the interior region of the plasma is essentially field free and neutral. An electron fluid-dynamical wave is composed of two parts: a) the thin Debye sheath region in which the field falls to a negligible value, and the electrons come to rest relative to the heavy particles, and b) the broad quasi-neutral region behind the sheath in which the field is negligible. In this region electrons and heavy particles have the same velocity, and electron the gas cools down by ionizing the neutral particles. The sheath region for both proforce waves (forces on the electrons due to the electric field is in the direction of wave motion) and antiforce waves, either with or without a current in front, have been investigated. The results conform with the boundary conditions at the end of the sheath and also the available experimental data. The most recent papers on this topic were published in summer of 2009.

A complete understanding of the phenomenon will require further study in the area of proforce and antiforce current bearing waves and the quasi-neutral region as well. At present, I am investigating the computer solution of the electron fluid-dynamical equations for antiforce current bearing waves. The most recent papers on this topic were published in 2011.
