Gimeno Martinez, B.; Boria Esbert, VE.; Gómez, Á.; Vegas, Á. (2014). Multipactor effect in a parallel-plate waveguide partially filled with magnetized ferrite. IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. 61(7):Abstract-The aim of this paper is the analysis of the multipactor effect in a parallel-plate waveguide when a ferrite slab, transversally magnetized by a static magnetic field parallel to the waveguide walls, is present. Employing an in-house developed code, numerical simulations are performed
more » ... in order to predict the multipactor RF voltage threshold in such a ferrite-loaded waveguide. Variations of the ferrite magnetization field strength and the ferrite slab height are analyzed. Effective electron trajectories are also shown for a better understanding of the breakdown phenomenon, finding different multipactor regimes. Index Terms-Multipactor effect, RF breakdown, parallelplate waveguide, ferrite components.
