Keywords: субнаносекундный пробой воздуха, азота и аргона в неоднородном электрическом поле, пучок убегающих электронов, зависимости параметров пучка электронов от давления газов, subnanosecond breakdown of air, nitrogen and argon in non-uniform electric field, beam of runaway electrons, electron beam parameters by pressure of gases


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.
