Power deposited on a dielectric by multipactor
We use a simple transmission line model to evaluate the RF power deposited on a dielectric window by a multipactor discharge. The calculation employs Monte Carlo simulation, using realistic secondaryExpand

Electric field and electron orbits near a triple point
Triple point, defined as the junction of metal, dielectric, and vacuum, is the location where electron emission is favored in the presence of a sufficiently strong electric field. In addition toExpand

Microwave absorption on a thin film
With the use of a simple model, it is shown that a thin film of contaminant on a microwave window may absorb up to 50% of the incident power, even if the film thickness is only a small fraction ofExpand

Cathode priming of a relativistic magnetron
A cathode priming technique of a relativistic magnetron is analyzed via a three-dimensional particle-in-cell simulation. By imposing a threefold azimuthal variation on the emitting cathode of aExpand
