Abstract : Data are discussed which was obtained on oil discharges with two discharge chambers; the characteristics of the circuits used are noted. A new triggerable oil source combining the characteristics of the .003-microfarad capacitor and a tubular oil chamber was designed and is being fabricated. The fourth configuration of the multiple configuration source was tested and the measurements are detailed. Some of the factors affecting the spark characteristics, such as spectral distribution, spark breakdown, and capacitor design, are discussed. (Author)
