We report experimental measurements of the threshold for multipactor discharges on dielectric surfaces at 110 GHz. Multipactor was studied in two geometries: electric field polarized parallel to or perpendicular to the sample surface. Measured multipactor thresholds ranged from 15 to 34 MV/m, more than 10 times higher than those found at conventional microwave frequencies. Measured thresholds were compared with prior data at lower frequencies, showing agreement with theoretical predictions that thresholds increase linearly with frequency. Measurements of the rf power dissipated in the multipactor show low dissipation (≤1%) for the parallel electric field case, but very strong dissipation for the perpendicular case, also in agreement with theoretical predictions. The agreement between experiment and theory over a wide range of frequencies provides a strong basis for the understanding of dielectric multipactor discharges.

The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
A technique of measuring the dielectric properties of materials, which vary over a range of frequencies depending on the physical properties of the material. The technique involves measuring, over a range of frequencies, ELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE and phase shift of an electric field as it passes through the material.
