    High energy beam technology is a term used to describe processes involving electron beams or lasers which can operate at high power densities, typically up to 10/sup 10/ KW/m/sup 2/, or for techniques using beams of ionised species with high kinetic energy, obtained by the application of a high accelerating voltage, generally up to 100 keV. Such processes are now widely accepted as practical alter... View full abstract»

    Today, thermionically derived electron streams and beams are applied across a spectrum ranging from the electron beam etching of semiconductor masks to the melting of metals in bulk, with the beam currents involved ranging from 1 nano amp to amperes. The spectrum of application includes domestic CR tubes, thermionic valves, X-ray generators, electron microscopes and electron beam welding and machi... View full abstract»

    An overview of the state of the art in the production and use of both high energy electron and ion beams is presented. After an introduction to the general principles of pulsed power techniques and systems, the various methods in use for producing pulsed relativistic electron and ion beams are briefly reviewed. Emphasis is placed on the principles of less familiar systems such as high voltage elec... View full abstract»
