and ozone concentration are measured for three dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) geometries, i.e., ten tubes of 10 mm outer diameter (OD), six tubes of 25 mm OD, and three tubes of 40 mm OD.ne
are deduced using optical emission spectroscopy via the line ratio method and the ozone concentrations are measured by using an ozone meter.ne
and ozone concentrations were the highest for the three tube-40 mm configuration, showing a correlation between
