A thick beam analysis of transverse-wave propagation on electron beams

Abstract

This paper presents some results from an analysis of transverse-wave propagation on electron beams of finite diameter and space-charge. The analysis shows that the simple filamentary beam model is inadequate in several respects. It does not give correctly the details of the electron motion within the beam, and does not predict all the transverse waves that can propagate on a beam of finite diameter and space-charge. In particular, it does not give higher order transverse waves, that is, waves with more than one variation around the circumference.
