Abstract:

DURING PHASE I MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO PERFORM A STUDY OF THE UTILITY OF CAVITY RESONATORS TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY AND MODIFY THE BANDWIDTH OF MICROWAVE EMMISSION FROM THE VIRCATOR. THE RESEARCH WILL INCLUDE BOTH A THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT. NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS OF THE CAVITY DESIGN WILL BE CARRIED OUT USING A THREE DIMENSIONAL FULLY RELATIVISTIC AND ELECTROMAGNETIC PARTICLE-IN-CELL PLASMA SIMULATION CODE. THE DESIGN WILL BE IMPLEMENTED ON AN ALREADY EXISTING 100 KV, 20 OHMS, 1 MICROSECOND PULSER. THE PROOF-OF- PRINCIPLE EXPERIMENTS WILL BE LIMITED TO CENTIMETER WAVELENGTHS. THE PROPOSED GOAL IN PHASE I IS TO PRODUCE MEGAWATTS OF RF, SHOW FREQUENCY TUNABILITY BY VARYING ELECTRON BEAM PARAMETERS, AND BANDWIDTH VARIABILITY BY DETUNING THE CAVITY.
