Abstract : An analysis of 'force-free' mode coupling in the Cuccia coupler is carried out to supplement the transverse mode coupling analysis. The complete analytical and experimental results on the cyclotron-synchronous wave amplifier are available in AD-653 009. A computer analysis of the power converter was carried out which includes space-charge and finite beam size effects. These calculations give results not too different than the filamentary beam results. Using the same space-charge beam model as that used in the power converter analysis, a beam stability computer calculation was carried out for the amplifier. The results are somewhat different than the published curves of Sackinger and Buck, and Bass. (Author)
