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

The design and simulation of a harmonic gyrotron based on a cusp electron gun is presented. The gyrotron is operated at the 7(th) electron cyclotron harmonic with an output frequency of similar to 390 GHz and mode pattern of TE71. A large orbit electron beam with an energy of 40 keV, beam current of 1.5 A and an adjustable pitch alpha from 1 to 3 from a cusp gun is used to drive the beam-wave interaction. Smooth cylindrical waveguide and slotted structures have been studied as interaction cavities. Theoretical analysis and numerical simulation results of these structures will be presented.
