Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Latest experimental developments of W-band gyro-devices with helically corrugated waveguides and a cusp electron gun are presented. The cusp generated a 40 keV, 1.5 A axis-encircling electron beam. Helical corrugated waveguides have ideal dispersive properties which improve the frequency tuning range of a gyrotron backward wave oscillator (gyro-BWO) whilst maintaining the already good efficiency of operation. The output power of the gyro-BWO was measured to be 12 kW with a frequency tuning range of 88-103 GHz.
