TL;DR: In this paper, the cyclotron modes were found to be purely transverse electric at cut-off, gradually changing in character along their propagation curves through hybrid to purely transversal magnetic modes at cyclotic resonance.
Abstract: In the analysis of the waves which propagate in a waveguide completely or partially filled with a stationary plasma column or an electron beam drifting with a uniform velocity and collimated with a magnetic field of finite magnitude, it is necessary to include the effects of the rotation of the electric field in order to treat the waves which have phase velocities comparable to or greater than the velocity of light. Certain interesting features of perturbed waveguide modes and cyclotron modes become apparent only when the dynamic nature of the electric field is recognized in the analysis. These features are the influence of cyclotron frequency and the polarization of waves on the propagation characteristics. The cyclotron modes are found to be purely transverse electric at cut-off, gradually changing in character along their propagation curves through hybrid to purely transverse magnetic modes at cyclotron resonance. A classification of modes of propagation is proposed, and formulae for cut-off f...

Abstract: A detailed analysis of wave dispersion in a plasma-filled waveguide in a finite external magnetic field is presented. The mutual influence of modes on their dispersion curves is treated. A new phenomenon is demonstrated: the coupling of the waveguide EH and HE modes and the parallel appearance of a backward wave. The values of Ω and ωp (the cyclotron and plasma frequencies) and R (the waveguide radius) at which coupling between arbitrary EH and HE modes becomes possible are found. The dispersion relations and field distributions of two new mode families that arise owing to the presence of the anisotropic plasma are analysed.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors considered the TE10 mode that propagates in an evacuated rectangular waveguide and encounters a plasma which is filled in another waveguide of the same size.
Abstract: Studies on the propagation of high power microwave and its interaction with a plasma in a metallic waveguide are carried out. For this we consider the fundamental TE10 mode that propagates in an evacuated rectangular waveguide and encounters a plasma which is filled in another waveguide of the same size. Using Maxwell’s equations we evaluate the field components of the mode in the evacuated waveguide and then obtain coupled differential equations for the field components of the mode in the plasma filled waveguide, where the plasma effect enters in terms of its dielectric constant. These equations are solved numerically using the fourth-order Runge–Kutta method for the electric field amplitude of the microwave and its wavelength under the effect of plasma density, waveguide width, and microwave frequency. All the investigations are carried out for different initial plasma density profiles, namely homogeneous density, linear density with gradient in the propagation direction and the density with Gaussian pr...

TL;DR: In this paper, the azimuthally symmetrical, high-frequency eigenmodes of a cylindrical metallic waveguide partially filled with a magnetized plasma were analyzed and the dependence of the cutoff frequencies and dispersion curves of various modes on the ratio of the plasma radius a to the waveguide radius R was studied.
Abstract: An analysis of the azimuthally symmetrical, high‐frequency eigenmodes of a cylindrical metallic waveguide partially filled with a magnetized plasma is presented. Equations that permit calculation of the dispersion curves for four families of electromagnetic and electrostatic modes are derived. Numerical solutions are presented to facilitate the development of devices for generation of high‐power electromagnetic radiation, charged particle acceleration, and other applications of plasma waveguides. The dependence of the cutoff frequencies, and dispersion curves of various modes on the ratio of the plasma radius a to the waveguide radius R is studied in detail. Space‐charge modes are found to be strongly dependent on the radius ratio a/R. The coupling of the dispersion curves of different modes and the variation of the cutoff frequencies of HE waveguide and cyclotron modes with cyclotron frequency are illustrated for the partially filled waveguide.

TL;DR: In this article, the EH01 field components are evaluated in a cylindrical waveguide filled with plasma in the presence of external static magnetic field applied along the direction of the mode propagation.
Abstract: In this article, EH01 field components are evaluated in a cylindrical waveguide filled with plasma in the presence of external static magnetic field applied along the direction of the mode propagation. The electron acceleration inside the plasma-filled cylindrical waveguide is investigated numerically for a single-electron model. It is found that the electron acceleration is very sensitive to the initial phase of mode-field components, external static magnetic field, plasma density, point of injection of the electron, and microwave power density. The maximum amplitude of the EH01 mode’s field components is approximately 100 times greater than the vacuum-waveguide case for operating microwave frequency f=7.64GHz, plasma density n0=1.08×1017m−3, initial phase angle ϕ0=60°, and microwave power ∼14MW in a cylindrical waveguide with a radius of 2.1cm. An electron with 100keV gets 27MeV energy gain in 2.5cm along the waveguide length in the presence of external power ∼14MW with a microwave frequency of 7.64GHz. The electron trajectory is also analyzed under the effects of magnetic field when the electron is injected in the waveguide at r=R∕2.
