Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The effect of conductivity and polarization of the solid and liquid phases on the pulsed electrical breakdown of suspensions was investigated. The variation of the suspension breakdown voltage with concentration of the disperse phase is attributed to distortion of the internal field due to impurity polarization and space-charge formation.
