Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

Experimental results are presented from the first free electron maser experiment to use a pseudospark electron source. A pulsed, 70–80 kV, 10 A electron beam of normalized brightness 10^11A(m*rad)^(−2) and current density 1kAcm^(−2) from a pseudospark electron cathode was used to produce coherent microwave radiation via a Cherenkov interaction between the electron beam and the TM01 mode of a 60-cm-long alumina-lined waveguide. A gain of 29 dB was measured with an output power of 2 kW in the frequency range 25.5–28.6 GHz. The experimental results were found to be consistent with numerical simulations of Cherenkov amplification.
