Title: Employment of Second Order Ruled Surfaces in Design of Sheet Beam Guns

Abstract

A novel 3D method of sheet beam gun design has recently been developed. Second order ruled surfaces (SORS) can be used to define the geometry of the gun electrodes. The gun design process is made simpler if SORS are derived from analytical formulas. A proposed method is discussed and illustrated.

  • The factors which enter into the design of large area high voltage electron beam guns in which the beam emerges from vacuum into a gaseous environment through a thin foil window are reviewed. The following restraints are considered: The type of cathode which can be used, the restrictions imposed by voltage breakdown, the need for uniform current density distribution, the maintenance of uniformity during modulation, and the restrictions imposed by the foil window. The design of a 5-cm wide by 125-cm long gun for cw operation is described. (auth)
  • Violations of Liouville's theorem have been observed in various tracking studies employing programs based on a second order matrix ray trace. This is because the truncated Taylor's series transformation used by the codes in question is not canonical. We describe a simple method, based on a generating function, that brings the ray trace to canonical form. This method utilizes the second order matrix elements provided by existing beam optics programs, and may be implemented by the use of a few FORTRAN subroutines. As an example, the program DIMAT has been modified to accept the symplectric ray trace; results obtained usingmore » both symplectic and nonsymplectic transformations are compared.« less
  • Design strategies for the synthesis of nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores with either large positive or negative first hyperpolarizabilities will be described. In particular it will be shown how by the correct combination of end groups the degree of ground-state polarization can be tuned and how this relates to the magnitude and the sign of the NLO response. The relevance of such molecules for poled polymer application will be explained.
  • This article describes approaches to computing second-order derivatives with automatic differentiation (AD) based on the forward mode and the propagation of univariate Taylor series. Performance results are given that show the speedup possible with these techniques relative to existing approaches. The authors also describe a new source transformation AD module for computing second-order derivatives of C and Fortran codes and the underlying infrastructure used to create a language-independent translation tool.
