Experimental setup. The Tesla coil delivers voltage up to 350 kV. The fs laser beam is focused and aligned to be in contact with the high voltage electrode connected to the Tesla terminal capacitor C2.
Equivalent electrical scheme of our Tesla coil.
Temporal waveform of voltage V2(t) at the output of the Tesla coil measured (red continuous line) and calculated with the solution of Eq. (1) (blue dotted line).
Integrated image of guided Tesla discharges between two electrodes separated by 50 cm. The laser comes from the left and the applied voltage peak is 350 kV.
Integrated image of the guided discharge with a single electrode applying a voltage peak of 350 kV. The laser comes from the left.
