Abstract

Linear and non-linear analysis of the electrostatic electron cyclotron instability in electron beams shows that the instability may be responsible for the degradation of the beam quality observed in gyrotrons. In this paper, electrostatic and electromagnetic PIC codes are presented and used to investigate this beam degradation problem.
