Numerical analysis and experimental design of a 103 GHz Cherenkov maser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

Numerical FDTD and PiC simulations demonstrate the successful electron wave interaction in a Cherenkov maser utilizing a cylindrical 2D PSL as a mode selective cavity. Optimization of this structure's physical properties results in the design of a cavity with 16 longitudinal periods of 1.6 mm length, 7 azimuthal variations and an unperturbed inner radius of 4 mm. In numerical simulations this design produces an output power of 300 kW with 10 % efficiency at a frequency of 103.6 GHz.
