I have a box filed with nitrogen gas at very low pressure. I Then created a uniform magnetic field and associated it with the box logical volume. The electric field strength is such that when a proton is released from one end it will accelerate to a kinetic energy of 120 keV when it reaches the opposite end. The purpose is to study electron production via ionization at low pressure. However, there is no ionization. But if I deactivate the field and fire a proton with 120 keV kinetic energy I get some electrons as should be expected. On Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:21:26 GMT, Gumplinger Peter wrote:
