High Voltage Plasma Generation

While many are familiar with the three fundamental states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas), there is also a fourth state of matter: plasma. Discovered by chemist Irving Langmuir in the 1920s , plasma is ionized gas to which energy has been delivered to the gas molecules, allowing electrons to break free from the nucleus of their corresponding atoms. The electrons can still travel with the atoms, but they are not bound to individual ions. Plasma consists of electrically neutral matter with unbound positive and negative particles, an ionized gaseous substance that is highly electrically conductive, with long-range electric and magnetic fields affecting the behavior of the matter .
Maintaining the plasma state requires separation of the electrons from their corresponding ions. Without additional energy provided to maintain the plasma state, the plasma will revert back into a gas state because of attractive forces between the ions and the electrons. Gravitationally, the nucleus of the atoms will attract electrons from the plasma because of the greater mass of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus. Electrically, positive ions will attract the negative electrons out of the plasma state. As a result, plasma generation requires a significant amount of input energy to both cause the initial plasma to be generated as well as to generate additional plasma, maintaining the balance of plasma in the environment as the existing plasma reverts back to the gas state...
