Paper Abstract

The diocotron instability for sheared, relativistic electron flow in a planar diode geometry with major fields Ex(x), Bz(x), and Vv(x) has been studied numerically by using a two-dithensional electromagnetic relativistic particle-in-cell code. The growth rate and real oscillation frequency are obtained and compared to the analytical results for a tenuous electron flow.
