Aims of the project: The aim of the bilateral project (IPP + Istituto de Astrofisica de Andalusia, IAA-CSIC Granada, Spain) is to investigate laboratory
TLE-like discharges (TLE=Transient Luminous Events), especially
so called "Red Sprites".
The principal goals of the project:
1) Design and construction of laboratory devices allowing periodic generation of TLE-like ionizing waves similar to "Red Sprites",
2) Determination of basic opto-electrical characteristics of laboratory TLE-like ionizing waves,
3) Comparison of spectrometric characteristics of real and laboratory "Red Sprites".
