Corona discharge experiments in admixtures of N2 and CH4: a laboratory simulation of Titan's atmosphere

Article English OPEN
Horvath, G.; Skalny, J. D.; Mason, N. J.; Klas, M.; Zahoran, M.; Vladoiu, R.; Manole, M.;

A positive corona discharge fed by a N2:CH4 mixture (98:2) at atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature has been studied as a laboratory mimic of the chemical processes occurring in the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. In-situ measurements of UV and IR tra... View more
