    Abstract

    We have obtained the ratio of the transverse diffusion coefficient to the mobility of electrons multiplied by the elementary charge, in Xe and Xe + H 2 under electric fields at a higher pressure of 1 MPa in comparison with those in preceding experiments. The results show that the density effect (nonlinear effect) of the ratio in both pure Xe and Xe + H2 is ≤15% below 1 MPa over the reduced electric field range from 0.08 to 0.6 × 10-17 V·cm2. We also found that the diffusion of an electron swarm is suppressed by adding trace amount of hydrogen to high-pressure xenon gas. We discuss the application of Xe + H2 gas to a new gamma-ray camera.
