The channels of incomplete breakdown in rock salt and organic glass are considered. It is shown that the discharge glow zone exceeds by hundreds of times the channel dimensions. It is indicated that thermo-ionization and photoionization processes can occur during the breakdown of dielectrics. Dielectrics having larger dielectric strength have larger discharge-development rates v. Values v 200,000 to 15,000,000 cmsec were obtained and were found to depend on the value of the excess voltage.
