  • The phase and amplitude operator equations valid for field intensities ranging from a single photon state to an intense laser state are derived by means of quantized field theory. Using the Dirac equation, driving current operators, which are expressed by radiation and electron fields, are separated into spontaneous, stimulated, and spin terms. Then, utilizing the semiclassical nature of the electron state, coherence condition and spectral equations are derived. From the spectral phase equation, a delay-time scaling for oscillator operation is obtained in good agreement with experiments. 1 ref.
  • A new general relativistic fluid formulation has been obtained for intense relativistic electron beams (IREB) with arbitrarily high relativistic mass factor ..gamma... This theory is valid for confined IREB equilibria such as those found inside high energy accelerators as well as in the pinched and ion-focused regimes of beam propagation in plasma channels. The new relativistic fluid formulation is based on the covariant relativistic fluid formulation of Newcomb with the parameter lambda identical to 1, in order to allow for realistic confined equilibria. The resulting equilibrium constraints require that the beam has a slow rotational velocity around its direction ofmore » propagation and that the off-diagonal thermal stress element, associated with these two directions of motion, be nonzero. The effective betatron oscillation frequency of the fluid elements of the beam is modified by the radial gradient and anisotropies in the thermal stress elements of the beam fluid. The wave equation, for sausage, hose and filamentation excitations on the relativistic fluid beam, is found to be formally identical to that obtained from the Vlasov equation approach, hence phase-mixing damping is a generic and self-consistent correlate of the new relativistic fluid formulation.« less
  • The equation of motion in the quantized probabilityamplitude field is put into a manifestly relativistic form, similar to the Tomonaga-Schwinger form in quantized field theory. It is proved that the equation of motion in this form can be solved. (auth)
  • During the 1970's, a new, innovative system was proposed for neutron flux/reactor power measurement and control--the pulsed ionization chamber (PIC) system, developed at the University of Florida. The proposed methodology promised wide range, single sensor, gamma compensated performance over 16 decades. Papers presented during that era supported the claims, including the PIC system's ability to provide enhanced performance under extremely severe environmental conditions of temperature and radiation field intensity. Yet, the question still remains, Is such a new system still needed For an answer, it would be beneficial to revisit PIC methodology, updated with state-of-the-art technology and techniques, as theymore » apply to reactor applications and to see if yesterday's answers are still valid.« less
