Transient Negative Mobility and Negative Differential Conductivity in Xenon

Application ID: 98541


This tutorial model presents a study showing the transient negative mobility and the negative differential conductivity effects in xenon. The stationary and time dependent Boltzmann equation in the two-term approximation is used to compute the electron energy distribution function. Electron energy distribution functions, electron mean energy, and drift velocity agrees well with simulation results published by Z. Donko and N. Dyatko.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
