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.

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.

Inductance Calculations with PerMag

This white paper illustrates how to use finite-element codes to calculate inductance. The calculations address transmission lines in the limit that the radiation wavelength is long compared to the transverse dimensions of the structure. The paper also shows how to set up solutions with two-dimensional PerMag code (for static magnetic fields) to get useful information for both the low and high-frequency limits.

Tape Drive Backup Warning

Tape drives and tape drive backups are expensive, time-consuming, and unreliable. Tape drives can cost from $350 to thousands of dollars (and the tapes aren’t free either). Plus, tapes are notoriously failure-prone and vulnerable to environmental degradation—and tape drive installation is expensive. Find out the other reasons why your tape backup system might not be an effective data storage and security strategy.
