Abstract:

Digital-computer programs have been used to analyze four Pierce-type electron guns. The numerical analysis has been very successful in identifying the deficiencies of the Pierce-design method when extrapolated to high perveances. It also has been possible to obtain radial phase-space diagrams for the beams from each of the electron guns studied. From these diagrams and by the use of several other computer programs, an estimate of the transverse energy distribution of the electron beams has been made. It has been found that the major contribution to the random transverse energy must be of nonthermal origin. Author
