Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

A novel interaction cavity has been designed for a gyro-oscillator, allowing co-harmonic generation at the 2(nd) and 4(th) harmonic resonances of the cyclotron frequency. The output aperture of the cavity has been designed to trap the lower harmonic, whilst allowing output of the upper harmonic. Results from recent numerical simulations, performed using MAGIC 3-D, are presented. The intended co-harmonic behaviour is observed, with simultaneous excitation of the 2(nd) and 4(th) harmonics. Refinement of the output structure is now being undertaken to ensure only the 4(th) harmonic signal is emitted.
