Paper Abstract

An 85 GHz, TE11 mode cyclotron auto-resonance maser (CARM) amplifier experiment is being planned at NRL. The experiment will use a Marx accelerator, a field-emission diode, and a 1 kW, 85 GHz Extended Interaction Oscillator (EIO). The accelerator will provide electron beam pulses with duration in excess of 100 nsec. A wiggler will be used to provide transverse momentum to the 10-100 A, 500 kV pencil electron beam. Stability against absolute instabilities is a critical issue for CARM Amplifiers. The goal of this program is to study the stability of a CARM amplifier theoretically and experimentally over a wide range of parameters.
