Hot Electron Mobility and Electron Attachment in Non-Polar Liquids

  • Werner F. Schmidt
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 193)


Electron transport in electric fields of high strength is of fundamental and practical interest. The study of the electron mobility and of electron attachment as a function of the electric field strength can give important information on the physics of the transport process. A detailed knowledge of the elementary processes which govern electron mobility and attachment is the presupposition for the development of an electrotechnology based on liquid dielectrics. In this lecture we give a short resume of the electron transport in high mobility liquids at high electric field strength, and we review some facts on the attachment of electrons to electronegative molecules. The examples and references have been chosen in such a way that the interested reader will have no difficulty to locate most of the important publications by means of an information retrieval system.
