Award List:

Development of a Non-Axisymmetric Permanent Magnet Focusing System for Elliptic Charged-Particle Beams

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Thomas Bemis, Mr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
A high-brightness, elliptic, electron or positron beam is a novel device that has wide applications in high energy accelerators. Once developed, a large-aspectratio elliptic electron beam would enable the development of L-band ribbon-beam klystrons (RBKs) or sheet-beam klystrons (SBKs), which are… More
