Abstract
Experimental studies of the broadening of the full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the arrival time spectrum (ATS) in the research KCD system as a function of drift distance and x- ray tube mA settings were carried out. Results demonstrate that the broadening of the FWHM is mainly due to two factors, the space charge spreading of the ionic plane and the presence of more than one charge carrier with different mobilities in the ionic plane. Diffusional broadening is estimated to be almost negligible.
