We investigate the classic “inverse problem” of extracting collision and scattering cross sections from measurements of electron swarm behavior. A Monte Carlo technique for simulating electron motion through a gas of isotropic scatterers is presented, providing a simplified version of Biagi’s MAGBOLTZ algorithm. Using this Monte Carlo software, we examine the thermalization of electron swarms, focusing on their drift velocity and informational entropy, providing justification for a set of…

TLDR
The eigenvalue spectrum is shown to be entirely discrete, thereby validating the eigenfunction-expansion approach and showing good agreement with the calculations.
