In this paper, several empirical and semiempirical models are used to describe the formative time delay dependence on working voltages tf (U) in neon at the pressure of 13.3 mbar. Besides our models, the empirical and theoretical models from the literature are successfully applied to the experimental data, without and with empirical corrections on the basis of our analysis. Good agreements with experimental data were found primarily at low overvoltages and with empirical corrections even at high overvoltages. The statistically based measurements of the breakdown time delay are shown to be convenient for the study of the formative time delay under different conditions.
