A ring model of the lasertron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A large-signal, 2-1/2 dimensional relativistic particle dynamics code has been written to simulate the electrical behavior of the lasertron. The theory and the approximations involved in this code are discussed in detail. Numerical results are presented to show the comparison with previous work and to show the general variation in lasertron performance with frequency, beam voltage, and beam current. The code has also been used to design a prototype 6-GHz lasertron for construction at the Laboratoire de l'Accelerateur Lineaire in Orsay, France. The calculations show that this prototype can produce 4.7-MW peak-power output with a conversion efficiency of 65%. At ... continued below

The calculations show that this prototype can produce 4.7-MW peak-power output with a conversion efficiency of 65%. At 3 GHz, the power would be increased by a factor approaching 10, and the conversion efficiency would be over 70%.
