Diffraction radiation from a modulated electron beam moving near a thin metal strip
Abstract
A rigorous solution to the problem of diffraction radiation from a modulated plane electron beam moving near a metal strip is obtained in the form of a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind relating to the Fourier transform of the radiation field. The solution is analyzed by the method of successive approximations in the longwave case and is obtained numerically for the case of an arbitrary strip width and arbitrary rate and frequency of electronbeam modulation. Energetic characteristics are studied, and diagrams of the directivity of the radiation field in the far zone are constructed.
