    This paper examines one basic process causing the d. c. high voltage breakdown of a gas. Specifically, it contains a modified criterion for the transition of a Townsend Avalanche to a Streamer Discharge. Instead of the assumption that the electrons in the avalanche are spread laterally by multiple scattering on gas molecules (thermal diffusion), the assumption used is that the electrons are spread solely by mutual electrostatic repulsion. A criterion is found that yields quantitative results comparable to those obtained using the "multiple scattering" assumption. This modified criterion is probably most useful where "multiple scattering" is improbable - where an electron loses almost all of its energy on colliding with complex gas molecules. In addition, the classical (thermal-diffusion-dominated) breakdown criterion is re-derived in a much simpler form. View full abstract»

  • Boundary Effects on Microwave Propagation in a Large Waveguide Containing a Magnetoplasma

    Solution of Maxwell's equations for a cold, uniform magnetoplasma bounded by conducting walls shows (i) how plane waves evolve in the space of (??/??c,??p/??c) with (kc/??c) as parameter, and (ii) the range of parameters in which whistler mode propagation without Wieder's fine structure can be expected. In this space, the whistler evolves from an electrostatic mode at low densities, the whistler characteristic appears in a range of densities where the static approximation is invalid, and at still higher densities, residual effects of boundaries show up in the fine structure, as accounted for by J. C. Lee. The asymptotic form of the solution when lateral dimensions are large shows the existence of classes of solutions which are inadmissible because none can be reached along a continuous locus in this space. Effects of finite boundaries on the dispersion characteristic and the interpretation of experimental data are discussed. View full abstract»

  • Cross Spectral Measurements in a Quiescent Magnetoplasma

    The low frequency cross spectrum of electron density fluctuations in a weakly ionized magnetoplasma is measured with two Langmuir probes aligned transverse to the static magnetic field. The shapes of the observed cross spectra are exponentionally damped cosines as predicted by theory. However, the frequency of the first zero crossing of the cross spectra is strongly dependent on probe bias. View full abstract»
