Electron transport properties of argon in the presence of crossed electric and magnetic fields were studied. The mean energy, the ionization rate, the drift velocity and the diffusion tensor were calculated. It was found that mean-swarm energy decreases with increasing electric field and increases with increasing magnetic field.
