Abstract:

Understanding of the equilibrium properties of intense relativistic electron beams is extremely important in various areas, including microwave generation and beam propagation in the atmosphere. This report examines the equilibrium properties of the intense relativistic electron beam described by the rigid-rotor equilibrium distribution function. Beam properties including an axial velocity profile, a beam temperature, a beam density, and equilibrium self-field profiles are calculated for a broad range of system parameters.
