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.

Based on previous experimental investigations on pseudospark (PS) discharges, a small-scaled PS electron beam source was conceived to drive a 200GHz microklystron. Recent PS e-beam experiments producing a beam of 1mm in diameter and klystron interaction simulations will be presented. The microklystron will be fabricated using micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) construction techniques.
