The article discusses a mathematical model developed to describe a narrow-gap point-to-plane corona system used in the detoxification of chemical agents or their simulants, for which the degree of destruction depends on the strength of the electric field or electron energy. Narrow-gap electrodes are characterized by extremely high electron activity and the presence of positive and negative ions. The three-dimensional spatial distributions in the electron density and the electric field are of primary interest. The results address the potential problems of the corona device and help to provide for an optimum design.
