Abstract

As spacecraft RF operational output power levels continue to increase, the mitigation of plasma-related phenomena such as RF ionization breakdown and multipactor increases in importance1-2. RF ionization breakdown in particular can cause catastrophic damage and potentially lead to significant degradation in system/mission performance. To address the lack of… (More)
