Employing a simple analytic model we demonstrate that electrons oscillating in a Penning trap may drain the energy stored in an active medium. For this process to happen, the ensemble of electrons must become bunched and the energy imparted to these electrons allows them to leave the trap resulting into a train of bunches, their angular frequency corresponding to the medium’s resonance.

    There are claims in the literature that in neutrino oscillations and oscillations of neutral kaons and B-mesons the oscillation phase differs from the standard one by a factor of two. We reconsider the arguments leading to this extra factor and investigate, in particular, the non-relativistic...

    The use of the resonance cyclotron absorption in the Cherenkov electron oscillator, which operates in the non-stationary regime of the super-radiation of short powerful rf pulses, is proposed. Due to a non-linear character of the absorption, it suppresses spurious oscillations at a small-signal...
