Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A narrow-band Free-Electron Maser (FEM) oscillator with a Bragg resonator was operated in the reversed guide field regime. A high-current accelerator generated the 300keV, 30A, 100ns electron beam. Radiation at 32GHz frequency and 500kW power, corresponding to ~5% efficiency, was measured. The measured FEM parameters agreed with predictions of a numerical simulation. The observed radiation frequencies compared well with ''cold'' microwave calibration of the cavity.
