Geiger-Müller – Quenching

problem of multiple pulsing is potentially severe in Geiger tubes

with Geiger tube – increased number of positive ions reaching the cathode greatly enhances the free electron emission probability

secondary discharge, even though caused by only a single electron, builds to an amplitude equal to that of the primary discharge

special precautions must be taken in Geiger counters to prevent possibility of excessive multiple pulsing
