A model has previously been described (1,2) which provides for the self-consistent numerical description of the spatially and temporally coherent evolution of electron avalanches in solid dielectrics. Various features of the propagating negative tip of the avalanche have been presented (1), and speculations were offered about the possible importance of… CONTINUE READING
