Abstract

Experimental results for breakdown voltage of sodium vapour measured for the first time using coaxial cylindrical electrodes of fixed gap distance (5 mm) and pressure (corrected to2 0 "C) in the range2 1 to 652 Pa are reported, and are founfdo l ltoow Paschen's Law. The investigations also reveal that V th-Ie characteristics are pressure dependent; the current during the breakdown and the buoifl dc-uurpre nt after a breakdoiws nei ther positive or negative. in spite of the central cylinder being always maintained at a positive potential
