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

This paper presents the theoretical results of a CW W-band (88-102 GHz), 10 kW Gyrotron Backward-Wave Oscillator (Gyro-BWO). A mildly relativistic, axis-encircling electron beam from a cusp gun has been designed to drive an interaction based on the Cyclotron Resonance Maser (CRM) instability in a cavity with a helically corrugated inner surface.
