Corona on antennas or transmission lines is a significant source of electromagnetic interference on aircraft. A corona onset criterion, which describes breakdown in nonuniform RF fields, is derived from the Boltzmann transport equation. Predictions of corona onset are made using recent formulae for net ionization. Measurements of 300 MHz corona onset for an isolated, cylindrical electrode were made and are compared with predictions. The results confirm that the derived breakdown criterion is a… Expand
