Abstract: We succeeded in obtaining gas discharge in 250, 150, and 50μm bore-diameter hollow-core fibers by using longitudinal DC excitation. Stable glow discharges of at least several minutes were observed for these hollow-core fibers, and a flash glow was also observed for a hollow-core capillary with a diameter of ~20μm. Breakdown of helium and argon gases in a 26.2cm-length 250μm-inner-diameter hollow-core fiber was achieved with a voltage of less than 30kV. Breakdown voltages of helium and argon gases were measured for various bore-sizes, fiber-lengths, and a pressure range of from below 1 to 50 Torr. Experimental results deviated from previous theoretical models and further theoretical and experimental investigations are needed to understand the unique characteristics of gas-discharge in miniature capillaries with bore-diameter below 250μm.
