Prof. Allen Garner and Loveless contribute fundamental physical understanding to gas breakdown under electric pulses

Nuclear Engineering Assistant Professor, Allen Garner and graduate student, Amanda Loveless recently made contributions to new research that shines light on the behavior of electrical breakdown for the smallest gap distances ever studied: a mere 5 to 10 microns. (A micron is 1/1,000 of a millimeter or about 1/400,000 of an inch.). The two contributed fundamental physics modeling and understanding to describe this breakdown in collaboration with Dr. Guodong Meng and colleagues from Xi’an Jiaotong University in China.
