Cloud Communications Services: Five Questions You Need to Address for Success

Many businesses have been successfully using cloud-based applications for years, but following this path for communications is much more recent. For some businesses cloud communications just means VoIP telephony, while others include applications such as video, text, chat, messaging, email, conferencing, etc. This guide addresses five key questions to help you determine how the cloud aligns with your business communications needs—including reasons to use the cloud, who the cloud is best for, whom... Read More

Designing Solenoid Lenses for Electron Beams

This paper reviews features of solenoid lenses, which are used to focus high-current electron beams. It also discusses how to characterize spherical aberration with a numerical orbit code, and how to employ scaling methods to organize simulations for maximum generality. Read More

Designing a Converging-beam Electron Gun and Focusing Solenoid

A frequent electron gun design goal is to produce a converging beam that matches to a focusing solenoid. This white paper describes a case study for a system to generate a narrow electron beam at high-current density and to transport it over a distance exceeding 8.0 cm for experiments on high- frequency microwave generation. Read More

Improved Trak Models for Beam-generated Magnetic Fields

This paper describes new methods in the Trak charged-particle optics code to find the self-consistent, beam-generated magnetic fields of high-current beams. The modifications are helpful for general work with relativistic electron beams. They are critical for simulations of high-power microwave devices like the relativistic magnetron and the magnetically-insulated line oscillator. Read More
