We have performed an experimental investigation of ozone production in a pulsed dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) reactor. Measurements of ozone in the gas-phase as a function of the power level show that in continuous mode a maximum concentration is achieved before a decrease presumably connected with gas-phase heating. When the reactor is employed in pulsed mode, by applying a definite duty cycle, a strong increase in ozone concentration is generally observed, with a maximum which happens at quite reduced duty cycles, thus requiring reduced power compared to the continuous mode.

Abstract

We have performed an experimental investigation of ozone production in a pulsed dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) reactor. Measurements of ozone in the gas-phase as a function of the power level show that in continuous mode a maximum concentration is achieved before a decrease presumably connected with gas-phase heating. When the reactor is employed in pulsed mode, by applying a definite duty cycle, a strong increase in ozone concentration is generally observed, with a maximum which happens at quite reduced duty cycles, thus requiring reduced power compared to the continuous mode.
