Abstract

High voltage spark discharges in water are characterised by intensive light emission which can be used for evaluation of plasma temperature in the discharge cavity. This paper presents a study of the plasma temperature of spark discharges in tap and distilled water as a function of the inter-electrode distance. The results show that plasma temperature reaches its maximum at a specific inter-electrode gap
