Abstract : 'Intense Relativistic Electron Beam Investigation', was reported in the 'Interim Scientific Report to the AFOSR for the period October 1, 1979 to September 30, 1980' and is herewith included by reference as part of this final report. Progress during the second (final) year of this contract is reported herein. In particular the following topics are discussed: (a) collective ion acceleration experiments using relativistic electron beams and localized ion sources produced by thin films, filaments, puffed gases and vaporization of small diameter wires; and (b) electron beam quality studies experiments in collaboration with Drs. Robert K. Parker and V. L. Granatstein at the Naval Research Laboratory with the objective of obtaining 'cool' beams propagating in vacuum in an axial magnetic field obtaining 'cool' beams propagating in vacuum in an axial magnetic field with minimum energy spread for such applications as the free electron laser.
