Modulation-Induced Filament Tearing in Microwave Atmospheric Plasma Jet

A typical 1-D surface wave discharge reacts to varying power by changing its length. If the temporal change of incident power is high, the discharge column may not react sufficiently fast. The effect is demonstrated by high resolution images of plasma plume tearing-off during rapid power decrease in amplitude modulated microwave argon jet.
