Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

In this paper the results of PiC code simulations and a laboratory experiment to investigate the evolution of an electron beam subject to magnetic compression of up to a factor of 30 is outlined. The experiment consisted of a 75 keV electron beam with significant initial sbeam with significant initial spread in velocity injected into an adjustable convergent magnetic field generated by a solenoid arrangement. The aim was to produce a horseshoe shaped electron velocity distribution and study the subsequent evolution of this distribution within an interaction waveguide at the peak of the axial magnetic field.
