Negative Ion Emission from a Stainless Steel Surface Due to Positive Ion Collisions

Published

Author(s)

S. G. Walton, R. Champion, Yicheng Wang

Abstract

Absolute yields of negative ions and secondary electrons resulting from positive ions impacting a stainless steel surface have been determined as a function of the impact energy. The surface conditions range from those commonly found in situ for discharge electrodes to a surface free of any adsorbate. The implications of these findings to discharge modeling are discussed.
