Research Institution
Multipaction is known issue with radio frequency components used in satellite systems like diplexers. The mitigation of this multipaction is an important step in the design and development process for these components. Numerical simulation can play an important role in testing current mitigation techniques such as magnetic insulation and surface treatments as well as assist in the development of new mitigation techniques. We propose to develop a new multipaction mitigation simulation tool based on the electromagnetic plasma code VORPAL.
