Transient Effects in Beam-Plasma Interactions in a Space Simulation Chamber Stimulated by a Fast Pulse Electron Gun
During the 1950’s and 1960’s there was increased interest in the interaction of electron beams with plasma generated by ionization caused by the primary electron beam. This interest was stimulated by the need to develop special vacuum tubes to operate in the kMHz frequency region. Thus, much of the early work was performed using small plasma containers and high current density beams.
