Experimental validation of fringing field effects for the multipactor phenomenon
Paper in proceedings, 2012

The multipactor effect is a constraining phenomenon in the design of RF components. Due to an increasing number of channels and power levels for multicarrier signals, specific requirements of design must be taken into account in order to prevent the multipactor effect. The current methods of analysis are based on the Hatch and Williams diagrams, which provide the multipaction threshold voltage for a parallel plate geometry as a function of the frequency gap product. However, whereas experimental results have shown good correlation with the theoretical charts for the parallel plate geometry, discrepancies have been found for complex geometries such as irises.
