Abstract : The effect of gas convection and turbulence on microwave breakdown power and on the diffusion of electrons in weakly ionized plasmas was studied for pulsed microwaves in nitrogen, argon, and air in a tube placed along the E field of an S-band waveguide. A new interpretation of the mechanisms which require increased and/or decreased microwave power for breakdown with increased gas flow velocities is presented. This interpretation seems to yield better agreement with the experimental…
