Abstract:

The design and operation of a compact, high power, millimeter wave source cusptron has been completed and proven successful. Extensive theoretical analysis of cusptron beam and rf dynamics has been carried out and published. Theory agrees beautifully with experiment. Microwave Bragg scattering due to been achieved by using expanding plasmas to upshift rf signal frequencies.
