Measurement of microwave Cerenkov radiation in air exhibits the diffraction pattern predicted in earlier work. The radiation appears only at harmonics of the frequency of periodic electron bunches, angular distribution power measurements are presented for frequencies of 2.86, 5.71, 8.57 and 11 & 12 GHz corresponding to the fundamental and the first three harmonics of an S band RF linac

Davidson, David Franklin (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-06);The NPS LINAC was initially designed for use in radiation damage and nuclear structure studies. The LINAC's role has subsequently evolved to include research in a variety of other areas such as the generation of coherent ...
Production of x-rays by the interaction of charged particle beams with periodic structures and crystalline materials Rule, D.W.; Fiorito, R.B.; Piestrup, M.A.; Gary, C.K.; Maruyama, X.K. (SPIE, 1991);We describe our recent experimental study of the production of x-rays by an electron beam interacting with a crystal lattice, i.e. parametric x-ray (PX) generation. In this radiation process the virtual photon field ...
Wee, Kyoum Bok (Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1988);X-band radiation has been observed which occurs when an electron beam travelling in air traverses an aluminum plate. The radiation pattern is more complicated than can be explained with a simplified model of Cerenkov ...
