Streamer coupling theory is traditionally used to engineer the generation of diffuse plasmas in the regime preceding filamentary discharge, but this method remains inefficient. Here, an alternative route to cost-efficient diffuse plasma generation is proposed, involving the expansion and quenching of existing filamentary discharge.
