Conventional microwave sources utilize strong axial magnetic fields to guide an electron beam through an interaction region. A plasmaassisted slow-wave microwave oscillator (Pasotron) can operate without external magnetic fields because the presence of ions neutralizes the beam space charge and allows for radial motion of electrons under the action of transverse fields of the wave. The inherent efficiency of conventional microwave sources based on interaction with the backward wave with a I-D electron flow is…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
