The pressure-driven charge transport processes in dc microdischarges with a nanoporous zeolite cathode (ZC) examined according to enhanced effect of electric field. The distributed resistance of ZC and the impact of the ionizing component of the plasma on the control of the stable operation of a gas discharge electronic device at atmospheric pressure (AP) are investigated for the first time. The contribution of charge carriers in conductivity varied in a wide pressure range up to AP air microplasmas in both pre- and post-breakdown modes are discussed. Results show that the ionic transport predominated in low electric field while electronic transport predominated in the opposite conditions.
