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

Experimental results are presented of the first cyclotron autoresonance maser oscillator operated using the second harmonic of the cyclotron frequency. An interaction efficiency of 3.9% has been measured at a frequency of 14.27 GHz, using an 80 ns pulsed, 14 A electron beam of energy 300 keV, to produce a coherent microwave power of 170 kW. Emission occurred at 3.7 times the relativistic cyclotron frequency, due to the large Doppler frequency increase and second harmonic interaction.
