Propagation of high-power microwave pulses in air breakdown environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A chamber experiment is conducted to study the propagation of high-power microwave pulses through the air. Two mechanisms responsible for two different degrees of tail erosion have been identified experimentally. The optimum pulse amplitude for maximum energy transfer through the air has also been determined.
