Abstract

This article addresses the optimisation of coaxial RF excited flashlamp brought about by discharge stability, excitation efficiency, and operating frequency scaling. The data used in analytical and computer modelling of the significant properties of RF discharge was generated from the transformer theory analysis and experimentally obtained coefficients. The effectivity of the RF gas discharge in different excitation frequencies were observed. The results are used to determine what frequency type is suitable for power applications of pulsed flashlamps, and at CW operation.
