Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Based on previous experimental investigations on pseudospark (PS) discharges, a small-scaled PS electron beam source was conceived to drive a 200GHz microklystron. Recent PS e-beam experiments producing a beam of 1mm in diameter and klystron interaction simulations will be presented. The microklystron will be fabricated using micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) construction techniques.
