Prototype Design of Compact and Tuneable X-Band Pre-Bunched Free Electron Maser
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 85, 1-23, 2008
Abstract
At the University of Liverpool, we are developing prototype free electron maser (FEM) that are compact, powerful and efficient for potential industrial applications. The design, set-up and results of a novel X-band rectangular waveguide pre-bunched free electron maser (PFEM) are presented in this paper. Our initial device operates at 10 GHz and employs two rectangular waveguide cavities (one for velocity modulation and the other for energy extraction). The electron beam used in this experiment is produced by thermionic electron gun which operates at 3 kV and up to 50 μA. The nominal beam diameter is 1mm passing across the X-band cavity resonators. The resonant cavity consists of a thin gap section of height 1.5mm which reduces the beam energy required for beam wave interaction. The results, progress so far and the scope of work for the next couple of months are reported.
