Research Institution
The proposed program is to develop a detailed sheet-beam amplifier prototype design, generate all engineering blue prints, fabricate and cold test cavity components to demonstrate circuit design methodology and fabrication concept, develop the electron gun, magnet, and beam transport diagnostics, integrate beam generation and transport components into a functional beam-stick, and perform tests on the fully integrated beam-stick to demonstrate beam generation and stable transport. The overall goal is to resolve all critical circuit manufacturability and beam generation and transport issues and to demonstrate key enabling technologies. The successful demonstration of the work proposed herein will establish the technical foundation for future development of high-power THz sources in a compact, lightweight, and affordable package.
