Self-Organization of Gas-Discharge Plasma in SF6 and Related Gas Mixtures

  • V. V. Apollonov

It is shown that the features of the dynamics of the formation of a self-initiated volume discharge in SF6-based gas mixtures can be explained using the ecton model of the cathode spot formation and the effect of limiting the current density due to the processes of dissociation of molecular components of the gas mixture.
