A theoretical and experimental Investigation of the Mechanisms via which a gas, at high pressures, undergoes electrical breakdown has been carried out. Theoretically, a model has been developed to describe the initial phases of breakdown in the regime where the Townsend avalanche mechanism does not apply. The model is based on electron Kinetics in regions of highly inhomogeneous electric fields.
