In this paper we have presented our simulation studies of 2.4 GHz microwave plasma production under the electron cyclotron resonance with an idea to expand the plasma generation conditions into the much lower pressure range and much shorter gap length. As the first for this purpose, we have focused on the influences of applied magnetic field, gas pressure and gap length on the breakdown and maintenance of plasmas. Calculations were performed by using a one-dimensional particle-in-cell/Monte Carlo collisions code with three velocity components. The obtained simulation results are in a good agreement with the available experimental data providing an insight into the resonant electron acceleration for ECR condition and the resonant electron confinement for the 2nd harmonic ECR. In addition, analytical expressions for the breakdown voltage and the trapping field have been derived.
