21 April 2016 Perspective sub-THz powerful microwave generator "nanovircator" for T-rays biomedical diagnostics
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we suggest the new approach of powerful sub-THz signal generation based on intense electron beams containing oscillating virtual cathode. Suggested compact microwave source complies with a number of biomedical applications such as imaging, preventive healthcare, etc. In this work we discuss the results of numerical simulation and optimization of the novel device called “nanovircator” that have been carried out. The results of the numerical study show the possibility of “nanovircator” operation at 0.1-0.4 THz frequency range.
