Excess Electron Mobility in Argon Gas in an Extended Temperature and Density Range

  • A. F. Borghesani
  • P. Lamp


The study of the transport properties of excess electrons in dense non polar gases is aimed at understanding the nature of the electron states in a disordered medium and at elucidating how the electron-atom interaction is modified by the interplay between the quantum nature of the electron and the short average interatomic distance in a dense gas.
