Paper Abstract

Secondary Emission Discharge (SED) is one of the critical factors, which limit energy possibilities of the powerful HF-electronic devices with great magnetostatic fields (e.g., relativistic generator and amplifiers); it initiates a breakdown mechanism. The most dangerous, nonlocalized variety of the SED, which develops with the highest speed, is the one-sided resonance discharge. It is formed by electrons that oscillate near one of the Me surfaces and are driven back to this surface by the magnetic field H0, which is directed in parallel or at some angle to this discharge surface. Characteristics of such secondary emission resonance discharge (SERD) have not been studied yet in the cases of arbitrary direction of the field H0 to the discharge surface. However, near the walls of various devices (e.g., electrodynamic structures of generators) the angle of the direction of the field H0 with respect to the surface can change in a wide range. The basic concepts of the theory of SERD starting regimes are studied in this report.
