Relation of Electron Scattering Cross-Sections to Drift Measurements in Noble Gases
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
Excitation of helium atoms in collisions with plasma electrons in an electric field
The rate constants are evaluated for excitation of helium atoms in metastable states by electron impact if ionized helium is located in an external electric field and is supported by it, such that a
Plasma modelling and numerical simulation
An editorial review of plasma modelling provides a bird’s eye perspective on plasma modelling and discussing the historical context in which it has surfaced, as well as introducing and complementing 20 invited contributions.
The Influence of a Longitudinal Magnetic Fields on a Non‐Uniform Positive Column
The variations of plasma parameters of a dc discharge in a non‐uniform magnetized plasma were measured using fast floating double Langmuir probes. A solenoid is used to produce a uniform magnetic
Processes in condensed inert gases involving excess electrons
Drift of an excess electron in dense and condensed inert gases in external electric field and excitation of atoms by electron impact in these systems are analyzed. The effective potential energy
Fokker–Planck transport simulation tool for semiconductor devices
Abstract The paper investigates a new method for simulating carrier transport in semiconductor devices where the field may be high and strongly inhomogeneous. The simulator is based upon a
REVIEWS OF TOPICAL PROBLEMS: Kinetics of electrons in gases and condensed systems
Kinetics of electrons moving in a gas or a plasma under the action of external fields is considered. Elementary processes of elastic and inelastic electron–atom collisions responsible for electron
The influence of a transverse magnetic field on a subnormal glow discharge in air
In subnormal glow discharge under d.c. excitation at different pressure in a varying transverse magnetic field (0 to 30 G) some measurements have been carried out for various initial average tube
The Drift of Electrons and Ions in Gases
The behaviour of the drift chamber depends crucially on the drift of the electrons and ions that are created either by the particles measured or in the avalanches at the electrodes. In addition to
