APPLIED RESEARCH ON CROSSED-FIELD ELECTRON GUNS
MICHIGAN UNIV ANN ARBOR ELECTRON PHYSICS LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
Several methods for the design and analysis of crossed-field electron gun systems are discu sed and some specific designs are described. The analog computer setup was applied to the Kino gun and particular information on the maximum cathode width tolerable for a laminar flow is given for one design. The variation of spacecharge density across the beam is compared with the Brillouin flow condition. The development of crossed-field beam analyzer measuring equipment continued and an analysis is given relative to the measurement of current density components in the beam by procedures similar to the pinhole technique used in axially symmetric systems. Probable errors are analyzed and a design is presented. A digital computer program was completed for the design of any crossed-field gun and the numerical techniques used are discussed. The present computation time of approximately one hour can be reduced y further program optimization. A new analog means for determining gun electrode shapes is presented which is a modification onaval Shipyard, Brooklyn.
