Abstract

In this work it is investigated, in the parallel-plate waveguide case, how the 1D, 2D or 3D motion of the electrons inside the waveguide can affect the generalized susceptibility diagrams, by means of a developed model capable of tracking the exact trajectory of multiple effective electrons which includes effects such as the spreading of the secondary electron departure kinetic energies or the dependence on elastic and inelastic electrons. On the other hand, a comparative study of the susceptibility charts in a parallel-plate and in its equivalent rectangular waveguide with the same height is performed, showing how the inhomogeneity of the electric field inside the waveguide modifies the multipactor region with respect to that predicted by the parallel-plate waveguide case. The results of this study are going to be extended to a partially dielectric-loaded rectangular waveguide, which is a problem of great interest in the space industry that has not yet been rigorously investigated in the literature.
