Experimental Study and Monte Carlo Simulation on Luminous Layers in Neon
The first study on luminous layers phenomena was reported by Hoist and Oosterhuis1 in 1923. They observed the phenomena between a pair of plane parallel electrodes at several V·cm−1Torr−1 and 0.1 µA in a Ne-filled tube. Druyvesteyn2reported on luminous layers phenomena in He, Ne, and Ar. We can recognize the layers which appear at equal intervals between the anode and the cathode by some photographs in the paper. Hayashi3 observed circular luminous layers in a Ne-filled discharge tube with a concentric electrode. Hölscher4 investigated the characteristics of the transition from luminous layers to striations in Ne. Emeleus5 discussed the space charge effect in the transitional region from Townsend discharge to glow discharge.
