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

In this paper the results of PiC code simulations and a laboratory experiment to investigate the evolution of an electron beam subject to magnetic compression of up to a factor of 30 is outlined. The experiment consisted of a 75 keV electron beam with significant initial sbeam with significant initial spread in velocity injected into an adjustable convergent magnetic field generated by a solenoid arrangement. The aim was to produce a horseshoe shaped electron velocity distribution and study the subsequent evolution of this distribution within an interaction waveguide at the peak of the axial magnetic field.
