  • Published 2006 in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science


Experimental results on runaway electron generation with an energy of 20-350 keV at nanosecond discharge in air under normal conditions are presented. Physical conditions are specified for the efficient generation of runaway electrons in dense gas using this type of discharge. A subrelativistic electron beam is obtained in air under normal conditions with… (More)
