An innovative multiphase AC arc was drastically improved by diode-rectification technique with bipolar electrode. Temperature fields and arc behaviour of the diode-rectified multiphase AC was successfully visualized on the basis of the high-speed camera technique with appropriate band-pass filter optics. Arc temperature was measured by Boltzmann plot method with two line emissions from atomic argon at 675.2834 nm and 794.8176 nm. Arc temperature fluctuates in the range from 7,000 to 13,000 K. The arc temperature near the cathode was higher than 13,000 K, while that near the anode was about 10,000 K. Arc temperature in the centre region in the furnace was about 7,000–9,000 K, which is sufficiently high to melt and evaporate the refractory metals or ceramics. Obtained results suggested the diode-rectified multiphase AC arc is a promising thermal plasma source for material processing at high productivity.
