central electrode

central electrode

a key part of a radiation detection instrument, consisting of a positively charged rigid wire in the center of a gas-filled cylinder. The electrode attracts electrons liberated by the ionization effects of radiation and converts them into an electric current.

In the vertical direction, most of the electric field intensity is similar, whereas it is greater near the lower end of the central electrode, which is regarded as the 'end effect' phenomenon.
