On the effective diffusion length for microwave breakdown

Abstract

The concept of effective diffusion length, as a means to characterize diffusion losses in calculations of microwave breakdown in radio frequency (RF) devices with inhomogeneous electric fields, is discussed in detail with emphasis on geometrical situations where the inhomogeneity of the microwave electric field plays an important role for the breakdown… (More)
