Abstract:

The influence of pressure of air, nitrogen, and argon on generation of runaway electron beams in non-uniform electric field is studied. Obtained data on parameters of runaway electrons beam at pressures corresponding to the heights higher 20 km above the ocean in the Earth's atmosphere.

Keywords:

subnanosecond breakdown of air, nitrogen and argon in non-uniform electric field, beam of runaway electrons, electron beam parameters by pressure of gases
