    A cylindrical reentrant cavity is discussed that features a tunable resonant frequency. The tuning range can, in principle, be as large as a factor of 3, but the present design achieved only a 28% tuning range. Such a system could be utilized where it is necessary to tune the resonant frequency...

    A microwave measurement technique, using a novel cell which enables the sheet resistance (R[Laplacian_variant]), the carrier density (n), and the mobility (μ) of epitaxial layers to be measured, is proposed. The system, controlled by a microcomputer, performs this characterization by...

    We derive, discuss, and test against experimental data an analytical model of the gain saturation in microchannel plate (MCP) devices. By introducing a simple recharging circuit for each dynode, we extend the well-known, unsaturated gain model of Eberhardt to a microchannel operating in...

    Using a new energy filter, three-dimensional conformal irradiation for proton therapy can be realized by monoenergetic beam scanning. It is a big advantage that the method does not necessitate energy scanning from the viewpoint of shortening the scanning time for cancer treatment of a moving...

    High contrast Moire fringes have been observed when two gratings were inserted into a proton beam produced from the interaction of a 100 TW laser beam with a thin solid foil. Moiré fringes with modulation close to 20% were observed in protons with energies between 4 and 7 MeV. The fringes...

    The measurement of the close-to-the-carrier noise of two-port radio frequency and microwave devices is a relevant issue in time and frequency metrology and in some fields of electronics, physics, and optics. While phase noise is the main concern, amplitude noise is often of interest. Presently...
