Numerical Simulations of a Relativistic Inverted Magnetron

  title={Numerical Simulations of a Relativistic Inverted Magnetron},
  author={Timothy P. Fleming and Michael R Lambrecht and Keith L. Cartwright},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science},
A new design for an inverted magnetron is presented and modeled both analytically, using a single particle smooth bore relativistic approach, and numerically, using a massively parallel electromagnetic particle-in-cell code, Improved Concurrent Electromagnetic Particle-In-Cell (ICEPIC) code. Analysis and simulation confirm that the inverted magnetron design presented here is capable of oscillating in the π mode at axial magnetic fields of the order of ~0.1 T. ICEPIC simulations demonstrate that… CONTINUE READING
