Paper Abstract

The beam space-charge associated with a gyrating intense relativistic electron beam limits the current that can be propagated, and thus the ultimate gyrotron power. An experiment at NRL has investigate the use a background plasma to increase the gyrotron beam current beyond the vacuum space charge limit, and thus to permit higher power gyrotron operation.
