- This model for the mononegative atomic or molecular ion in its effect on the most loosely bound electron is a spherical square well (constant positive inner potential within a sphere of radius r/sub 0/ and zero potential outside). From it we have calculated by quantum mechanics the emission rate w/sub ..nu..lm/ of electrons from the ..nu../sup th/ excited state (of orbital angular momentum and magnetic quantum numbers l and m and energy E/sub ..nu..l/ < 0) under the influence of a constant electric field F. The calculation is conceptionally simple (involving time-dependent perturbation theory) but technically complicated (requiring an eleven-fold integration), and leads to a surprisingly simple final expression. The relevance of our calculations to gaseous dielectrics is discussed.
