Electrons directed by E1 (0.1 to 1 kV / cm) to the micro-grid, and cross the mesh holes. 2 ) Amplification stage: E 2 (≈ 50 kV/cm) >> E 1  avalanche, electrons mulitplication.

8 Spark in micromegas and resistive coating solution: A point charge being deposited at t=0, r=0, the charge density at (r,t) is a solution of the 2D telegraph equation. Only one parameter, RC (time per unit surface), links spread in space with time.
