Paper Abstract

This paper considers the possible amplification in dielectric media of x-ray and vacuum ultraviolet radiation by electron beams. The medium can be a uniform dielectric resulting in stimulated Cherenkov radiation or a periodic, inhomogenious dielectric resulting in stimulated transition radiation. Two distinct geometries for resonators are considered. In one case, a simple confocal resonator is placed at an oblique-angle to the electron beam. In the other, a conical mirror is used to reflect the entire radiation cone back onto the electron beam. The small signal gain for a short interaction length is found for both these cases to vary linearly with frequency resulting in higher gain for shorter wavelengths.
