ABSTRACT
The characteristic feature of a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) is the dielectric barrier placed between the electrodes. In the present work, the influence of the dielectric barrier to the properties of a DBD in air was investigated. Spectroscopic characterization of the DBD and electrical measurements were carried out. It was shown that the efficiency of a DBD can be considerably improved by optimizing the dielectric barrier. The dielectric material should possess an appropriate relative permittivity and thickness. For thin dielectric barriers, a high secondary emission coefficient becomes important. Additionally, the use of only one dielectric barrier is advantageous.
