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, 2020)With the conclusion of the first two observing runs of the Advanced LIGO detectors, which saw the first direct detection of gravitational waves, we are firmly in the era of gravitational-wave astronomy. To reach the highest ...
