Abstract : Research is concerned with the use of analog and digital computer methods along with analytical means to design and evaluate high-convergence, high-density electron guns of the M-type. Several methods of designing crossedfield electron guns for use in injected-beam crossed-field devices are outlined. An analog method utilizes a nonlinear function generator (Poisson cell) in conjunction with an analog computer to solve Poisson's equation. A digital computer program for the design of such guns is outlined, as well as a method for solving the problem of space-charge density calculations. Also a new type of hybrid electron gun is proposed which seems applicable to high-current density-pulsed devices. (Author)
