Theoretical predictions of single-surface one-point multipactor modes have been confirmed in experiments with a 17 GHz standing wave single cell disk-loaded waveguide accelerator structure operated in gradient range of 45-90 MV/m. A dc-biased probe placed outside of a slit in the side wall of the structure was used to measure the internal dark current electron energy distribution. The results indicated that the electrons had kinetic energy up to about 50 eV, in agreement with our CST particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations. Further theoretical calculations were performed to calculate the frequency detuning introduced by the multipactor electron cloud on the cell side wall for different electron cloud thicknesses and densities. We found that the detuning (Δf/f) due to the electron cloud was small, about two orders of magnitude smaller than the reciprocal of the cavity loaded quality factor. This detuning is sufficiently small that it does not cause significant power reflection. Similar calculations were carried out for high gradient operation of accelerator structures at frequencies of 2.856 GHz and 110.0 GHz, showing similar small detuning by multipactor discharges.
