Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes the effects of space charge shielding on the steady state of multipactor discharge on a dielectric. Analytic methods are used to obtain an exact function for the potential in the discharge, assuming a Maxwellian distribution of emitted electrons. An equation for the amount of power deposited on the dielectric by the multipactoring electrons, for a given saturation level is given. A simple method for obtaining the saturation level, for a given material, is obtained.
