Abstract

In high-power microwave systems, we investigate the transition of breakdown from single surface vacuum multipactor discharge to collisional rf plasma in argon. As the gas pressure increases, electron-neutral collisions prevail against secondary electron emissions. In addition, the discharge formation time is obtained as a function of the gas pressure.
