    Smith-Purcell (SP) radiation has been widely used for the generation of radiation from microwave to optical frequencies, and it has recently become an attractive candidate for a Terahertz (THz) radiation source. Superradiant SP radiation has sharp angular and spectral distributions due to the bunching of the electron beams, and a three-mirror quasi-optical cavity (TMQOC) which has selectivity at b...

    A new reflector consisting of the inner and outer conductors is introduced into the coaxial relativistic backward wave oscillator for the first time through optimizing the distribution of the electric field and distance between the reflector and the slow wave structure. The improved reflector can excite the superposition of the axial electric fields to benefit the electron premodulation. The impro... View full abstract»

    The Beam Research Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is continuing development of the dielectric wall accelerator (DWA), a type of accelerator which uses stacked pulse-forming lines (PFLs) to apply an accelerating field directly to the beam through a nonconducting vacuum boundary. Here, we report operation of a DWA as an electron diode using a surface flashover plasma cathode. Peak ... View full abstract»

    Discharges in supercritical conditions is a new field in plasma science. The supercritical phase has distinctive properties that may allow for unique plasma processing applications. In this paper, we study plasma generation in a point-to-plane geometry in the micrometer scale. The effects of needle characteristics, including tip diameter and plane electrode surface roughness, on discharge initiati... View full abstract»

  • A Compact Design for High Voltage Direct Current Circuit Breaker

    The absence of current-zero points in the direct current (DC) waveform of high voltage DC (HVDC) circuit breakers makes the interruption process more severe than the case of conventional AC networks with sinusoidal currents. In this way, in the current HVDC networks, a parallel precharged capacitor is inserted to inject the reverse current into the interruption chamber of the vacuum circuit breake... View full abstract»

    An experimental study of the electrostatic probe floating voltage signals in a cutting arc and its physical interpretation in terms of the arc plasma structure is reported. Sweeping electrostatic probes have been used to register the local floating potential and ion current at 3.5 mm from the nozzle exit in a 30-A arc generated by a high energy density cutting torch with a nozzle bore radius of 0....

  • Investigation of the Scattering Efficiency in Doppler Reflectometry by Two-Dimensional Full-Wave Simulations

    Two-dimensional full-wave simulations of Doppler reflectometry in slab and curved geometries have been carried out with the finite-difference time-domain code IPF-FD3D. The goal is to find the instrument response function of the reflectometer that allows the recovery of the poloidal plasma-density-fluctuation-wavenumber spectrum by Doppler reflectometry at different angles of incidence. Apart from... View full abstract»

    In this paper, computer-aided design (CAD) of two types of RF windows, namely, double-disk RF window and pillbox-type RF window, is presented for use in high-power microwave/millimeter-wave sources. The design of double-disk RF window was carried out for 42-GHz band (TE0,3 mode) and 170-GHz band (Gaussian mode), while the design of pillbox-type RF window was carried out for 2.856-GHz ba...

    The motion and the equilibrium position of cylindrical particles in a radio-frequency plasma have been interpreted by dipole and quadrupole interaction in two experimental situations. Particles levitating in steady state are aligned either horizontal or vertical in accordance with the theory. However, particles have been observed tilted w.r.t. the vertical when acquiring a horizontal velocity from... View full abstract»
