About the book

In this book, the generation, focusing, formation and application of high-current electron beams will be reviewed. The use of new emission materials and technology for creating advanced emitters based on them will be described in detail. The conditions of their operations are discussed with the aim of ensuring the required life and stability of their emission properties. The main types of electron emissions and their uses for the formation of axisymmetric, tape and tubular electron beams will be described. The role and value of the electric and magnetic fields for focusing and transporting electron beams will be shown. Attention will be given to the mathematical simulation of charged particle ensembles and their application for learning physical processes and phenomena in electron beams. Methods for describing systems of charged particles (electrons), basic equations and characteristics of mathematical models will be given. The emphasis will be on the particle-in-cell (PIC) method and the features of their application to study complex collective processes of electromagnetic interaction in electron beams. Examples of the use of electron beams in vacuum microwave tubes will be given, as well as the prospects for their applications in scientific research, industry, medicine, etc

About the editor

Gennadiy Churyumov

Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics

Gennadiy I. Churyumov (M’96–SM’00) received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electronics Engineering and his Ph.D. degree from the Kharkiv Institute of Radio Electronics, Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 1974 and 1981, respectively, as well as the D.Sc. degree from the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1997. He is a professor at two universities, Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, and Harbin Institute of Technology. He is currently the Head of a Microwave & Optoelectronics Lab at the Department of Electronics Engineering at the Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics. His general research interests lie in the area of 2-D and 3-D computer modeling of electron-wave processes in vacuum tubes (magnetrons and TWTs), simulation techniques of electromagnetic problems and nonlinear phenomena, as well as high-power microwaves, including electromagnetic compatibility and survivability. His current activity concentrates on the practical aspects of application of microwave technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Vice Matušan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
