Collapse of cycloidal electron flows induced by misalignments in a magnetically insulated diode


The effect of a slight misalignment in the magnetic field on a magnetically insulated diode is investigated. It is found that a slight tilt in the magnetic field, with a minute component along the dc electric field, completely destabilizes the cycloidal electron flow in the crossed-field gap. The final state consists of the classical Brillouin flow… (More)
