Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An experimental investigation was performed on the stopping of charge injection in dielectrics irradiated by mid-energy electron flux. For relatively thick layers of LiF, PMMA, fused SiO2 and phosphate glass the phenomenon of annular current channel formation was observed when the electron beam had an energy below 0.1 MeV. A simple model of beam spreading is developed and the limiting conditions are established for the effect described.
