Abstract

Insulators composed of finely spaced alternating layers of dielectric and metal are thought to minimize secondary emission avalanche (SEA) growth. Most data to date was taken with small samples (order 10 cm2 area) in the absence of an ion or electron beam. We have begun long pulse (>1 μs) high voltage testing of small hard seal samples. Further, we have performed short pulse (20 ns) high voltage testing of moderate scale bonded samples (order 100 cm2 area) in the presence of a 1 kA electron beam. Results thus far indicate a 1.0 to 4.0 increase in the breakdown electric field stress is possible with this technology.
