Title: Beam profiles from multiple aperture sources

Abstract

Using a rapidly convergent approximation scheme, formulas are given for beam intensity profiles everywhere. In the first approximation, formulas are found for multiple aperture sources, such as a TFTR design, and integrated power for rectangular plates downstream for Gaussian beamlets. This analysis is duplicated for Lorentzian beamlets which should provide a probable upper bound for off-axis loading as Gaussian beamlets provide a probable lower bound. Formulas for beam intensity profiles are found everywhere. In first approximation, formulas are found for downstream intensity of multiple sources and integrated power for rectangular plates.
