Abstract:

The objective of this program is to develop various cold-cathode plasma electron guns to demonstrate that they have properties suitable for application to e-beam lasers. The plasma cathode electron gun has been the subject of study for the previous periods of this program. The results of these studies have shown that the plasma cathode e-gun is capable of producing large scale e-beams demonstrated 1000 sq cm at 150 keV and with a cw current density of 1 mAsq cm extracted through a thin foil window.
