Supervisor: Zdenko Machala Title: Experimental study of atmospheric glow discharge Abstract: In this Bachelor thesis we have dealt with the glow discharge at atmospheric pressure.
We described the glow discharge theoretically and then we experimentally investigated its electrical characteristics for various materials used for the cathode.
We examined the cathode fall of various materials and measured the electric field intensity on the positive column as a function of the current.
We also tested the thermionic emission properties of cathode materials.
