Abstract

This paper examines the design considerations for a magnetized sheet beam for which the electrons have energy both perpendicular and parallel to the magnetic field. The application envisioned for the sheet beam is the driving of a quasi-optical gyrotron for electron cyclotron resonance heating and current drive in fusion plasmas.
