Abstract:

The work reviews the state of the art on high field transport in insulators, reopens the question of the mechanism for dielectric breakdown, and underlines the difficulties in the way of achieving solid state multiplication in insulators. In spite of these difficulties, the far ranging significance of solid-state multipliers demands, in my opinion, that the program be continued until either such multiplication is achieved or its impossibility is firmly demonstrated.
