Relaxation processes of electrons and positrons in gases in electric and magnetic fields crossed at arbitrary angles

Dujko, S.; White, Ronald Douglas; Ness, Kevin F; Robson, Robert; Petrovic, Z Lj


A multi-term solution of the Boltzmann equation has been developed and used to investigate the temporal relaxation of charged-particle swarms under the influence of electric and magnetic fields crossed at arbitrary angles. A Monte Carlo simulation technique has been used to verify the Boltzmann equation analysis under hydrodynamic conditions and for an independent study of spatial relaxation of the electrons under non-hydrodynamic conditions. We present results for model and real gases...[Show more]
