Decay of Electric Charge on Corona Charged Polyethylene

Zhang, Linwen, Xu, Zhiqiang and Chen, George (2008) Decay of Electric Charge on Corona Charged Polyethylene, vol. 142, IOP Publishing

Record type: Book


In this paper, the surface potential decay of corona-charged low density polyethylene (LDPE) films has been investigated. It has been found that for the same sample thickness the faster decay occurs in the sample with a higher charging voltage. For the same charging voltage, the surface potential in the thinner sample shows rapid decay. Our new evidence from both the surface potential measurement on multilayer samples and space harge measurement suggests the surface potential decay is a bulk limited process. More importantly, space charge measurement indicates double injection has taken place during corona charging process.
