Gear Noise Cause of a Different Stripe

The article "Gear Noise Cause of a Different Stripe" appeared in the May 2021 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
“ It is very hard to find out any paper regarding ‘tiger stripes’ failure, created by electrical discharge current over the gear teeth.” I wish to have some more information on this issue + how it affects the vibration / noise signatures; why does it creates the tiger stripes profile; how deep are the pittings; why does it create the noise and the possibility of running a gear with this failure?”
