Usually, the binding energy of electrons in negative active centers is in the range EA = 2–4 eV, and the ionization potential for positive active centers is about Jo ≈ 10 eV. Hence, attachment of electrons is more proﬁtable for electrons of a glow discharge, and a small dielectric particle has a negative charge in a glow gas discharge. Due to the particle charge Z, it has the electric potential ϕ = Ze/r, where r is the particle radius. In the case eϕ < EA the electron state is stable, while in the case eϕ > EA an electron tunnel transition is possible, which leads to the decay of the electron state.

23 Determine the spectral density of black body radiation, i. , the energy of this radiation per unit time, unit volume, and unit frequency. On the basis of the deﬁnition of the spectral density of radiation, the radiation energy per unit time and unit volume with a range of frequencies from ω up to ω + dω is ΩUω dω. 19), one can represent this value as 2¯hωnω Ωdk/(2π)3 , where k is the photon wave number, dk/(2π)3 is the number of states per unit volume and for a given element of the wave numbers, the factor 2 accounts for two polarizations of an electromagnetic wave, and nω is the number of photons located in one state.

24) Let us consider the case of polarization interaction of an ion and atom, when the interaction potential is U(R) = −αe2 /(2R4 ), where α is the atomic polarizability. 3 Elastic Scattering of Classical Particles Then the polarization cross section for capture of an atom by an ion is equal to σc = 2π αe2 µv2 1/2 . 17 Obtain the criterion of reality for the capture cross section determined in a real situation. A real dependence for the pair interaction potential is given in Fig. 8. This interaction potential is characterized by the minimum U(Re ) = −D at a distance Re between atomic particles.
