Abstract
Lightning involves high energy processes that still are not well understood. In the laboratory voltages pulses are used to produce long sparks allowing the production of energetic radiation. In this paper X-rays emitted by long sparks in air are simultaneously measured with the RF power radiation at ¿2.4 GHz. The experiment showed that RF power systematically peaks at the time of the X-rays generation (in the measurement time scale). Sparks presents peaks of RF radiation before the breakdown of...
