Studies of dielectric multipactor discharges and gas breakdown initiated by high power millimeter waves ?(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)This thesis reports the theoretical and experimental investigation of discharge phenomena induced at dielectric surfaces and in gases by a 1.5 MW, 110 GHz gyrotron operating in 3 [mu]s pulses. The experimental study of ...
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)The growing demand for efficient infrared sensors for light ranging, thermal-cameras, and soon, free-space optical communications has yet to be answered. In this study, we use polycrystalline silicon in conjunction with a ...
