Abstract

A proof of concept for a microwave microplasma generator that consists of a halved dielectric resonator is presented. The generator functions via leaking electric fields of the resonant modes - TE01δ and HEM12δ modes are explored. Computational results illustrate the electric fields, whereas the stability of resonance and coupling are studied experimentally. Finally, a working device is presented. This generator promises potentially wireless and low-loss operation. This device may find relevance in plasma metamaterials; each resonator may generate the plasma structures necessary to manipulate electromagnetic radiation. In particular, the all-dielectric nature of the generator will allow low-loss interaction with highfrequency (GHz-THz) waves.
