Abstract : The book, claimed to be the first to deal especially with the role of ion bombardment in electric vacuum techniques and experimental physics, describes briefly the secondary processes which occur when the surface of a solid is bombarded by ions. The useful and harmful roles of ion bombardment in electronic vacuum devices, experimental physics, and outer-space flights are considered. Several applications of secondary electron emission induced by ions in various vacuum tubes and in measurement techniques are described.
