MONTE CARLO SIMULATION OF ELECTRON AVALANCHE IN HYDROGEN

Abstract
In recent conference papers, we described a MCS of the behaviour of electron swarms and the properties of back scatering of electrons to the cathode in a low pressure helium, argon1) and nitrogen2) gas under the influence of a uniform electric field. The properties of electron avalanches in hydrogen were studied using a same MCS technique at ratios of the electric field intensity to the gas number densit E/N of from about 3 to 3000 Td.
