n
(General Physics)
a. the formation of ions as a result of a chemical reaction, high temperature, electrical discharge, particle collisions, or radiation
b. (as modifier): ionization temperature; ionization current.

ionization

The process of producing ions by the removal of electrons from, or the addition of electrons to, atoms or molecules.

ionization

The process by which an atom becomes an ion by either losing or gaining one or more electrons.

2.ionization - the process of ionizing; the formation of ions by separating atoms or molecules or radicals or by adding or subtracting electrons from atoms by strong electric fields in a gas
natural action, natural process, action, activity - a process existing in or produced by nature (rather than by the intent of human beings); "the action of natural forces"; "volcanic activity"
