ABSTRACT
The emission angle and output profile of a fanning beam were evaluated in a high-gain polymeric medium utilizing a conventional sandwich cell structure. An abrupt change of the emission angle and a spread of the beam profile were found with an applied electric field. These beam properties were explained in terms of the electric-field-induced Pockels coefficient of the medium.

    The paper reports on numerical simulation to inquire into the breakdown of a gas-filled diode in a highly inhomogeneous electric field. It is shown that early in the breakdown a runaway electron beam (RAEB) is formed in the diode and this strongly affects the rate of breakdown development. The...

    A simple secondary-electron-emission (SEE)-based source was fabricated using a carbon-nanotube-dispersed MgO precursor solution. This emission source exhibits a high SEE gain as over 103. In addition, the self-sustaining current was observed even after turning off the primary electron beam, then...
