A directly heated line source emitter with beam power (>; 50 KW/cm2) is developed. The emitter assembly design parameters and beam characteristics are analyzed using a highly uniform magnetically confined region. Circular cross-sectional tungsten cathodes of diameters 0.9 mm and 1.5 mm were used, and their results are compared. The developed emitter… CONTINUE READING
