Voltage breakdown characteristics of microwave antennas
At low pressures, antennas are susceptible to voltage breakdown. In the case of missiles, for example, there are indications that very low power is sufficient to initiate and maintain breakdown.Expand

Voltage Breakdown Characteristics of Microwave Antennas
The problem of voltage breakdown and its effects is discussed for a pulse antenna system. Voltage breakdown occurs at power levels when the pressure is reduced. The minimum breakdown potential occursExpand

Breakdown limitations on the transmission of microwave power through the atmosphere
One of the limiting factors in the transmission of the increasingly large amounts of microwave power available is voltage breakdown of the atmosphere. Almost all of the published work dealing withExpand

RESEARCH STUDY OF MICROWAVE BREAKDOWN OF AIR AT HIGH ALTITUDES
Abstract : Almost all of the published work dealing with voltage breakdown at microwave frequencies was concerned with breakdown in the presence of surfaces to which articles can diffuse. RecentExpand
