Electron swarm transport coefficients in CO - measurements and kinetic studies

The electron swarm transport coefficients (bulk drift velocity, bulk longitudinal component of the diffusion tensor, and effective ionization frequency) in CO are investigated for a wide range of the reduced electric field by means of measurements and kinetic calculations. The set of data contains results of measurements in a scanning drift tube apparatus under time-of-flight conditions as well as of kinetic swarm calculations using solutions of the electron Boltzmann equation and Monte Carlo simulations.
