Abstract:

The results of an analytical and an experimental investigation of ionization currents for pairs of parallel cylindrical electrodes subjected to 200,000 rhr of cobalt-60 radiation are compared. Two electric-field assumptions were used to derive two ionization-current equations. Fair agreement was achieved between measured and calculated values. The effects of pressure, voltage, electrode diameter, and electrode separation are illustrated in numerous ionization curves. Author
