Abstract

Multipactor onset, growth, associated space charge effects, and transition to ionization breakdown due to ambient or desorbed gases represent key stages of single and multifrequency RF-driven phenomena that inhibit performance in space-based and terrestrial vacuum electronics devices. Performance degradation through space charge detuning and interference with gain is expected for medium duration pulses, and ion generation and damage for longer pulses. In this research, combined theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches are applied.
