Abstract:

The report describes a program of work on beamplasma interaction. Both electrostatic and electromagnetic wave amplifying mechanisms are under investigation. For the former, studies in the absence of a static magnetic field are directed towards verifying the theory for the cases of finite beam-infinite plasma, and beamsurface wave amplification, when transverse modulation is applied. A dipole resonant coupling system for such interactions is under study. Two distinctly different lines are being followed for interactions in the presence of a static magnetic field Electrostatic cyclotron harmonic wave interaction is being examined, both theoretically and experimentally, and the potentialities of electromagnetic wave growth in the whistler mode are being investigated.
