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. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A novel method which measures beam axial and rotational velocity for any large-orbit beam with a common guiding center is described. Time-integrated beam velocity information is obtained using a beam block and phosphor scintillator. Results using this method are compared to capacitive probe measurements and trajectory modeling for the electron beam for a cyclotron autoresonance maser oscillator.
