    An ionization beam-profile monitor has been in operation since 2000 at the COSY accelerator. Ions of the residual gas are guided by an electric field to a detector. The design of the detector is based on a chevron of two microchannel plates and a position-sensitive anode. The physical principle...

    The existence of generalized self-similar solutions to the system of continuity and Poisson equations is analyzed for the problem of evolution of impact ionization waves (IIWs). It is shown that, for any physically reasonable electric-field dependence of the impact ionization coefficients, there...
