Tunneling mechanism for the formation of negative ions near the electrode
Krasnyak Yu. V., . Petrin S. Yu, Sinkevich O. A.
The zero-radius potential method is used to analytically solve the problem of the tunneling mechanism for the production of negative ions for particles which have a positive affinity to an electron and which move in an electric field near the electrode. An expression is derived for the probability of the formation of a negative ion.
