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 FEL-twystron with self-exciting input and profiled amplifier output sections is suggested for realization of effective particle trapping and adiabatic deceleration in an oscillator regime. Such a scheme is especially attractive, when distribution of the RF field in the region between sections is smooth. This can be provided, in particular, by the use of distributed feedback in the input section. According to calculations, the proposed method allows a significant increase in efficiency for FEL-ubitrons and CARMs. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
