Stimulated Raman scattering from a fully focused relativistic electron beam in a waveguide

  • Robert A. Schill (a1) and S. R. Seshadri (a1)


Stimulated Raman scattering from a fully focused relativistically drifting electron plasma in a parallel-plate waveguide is studied. A set of internally consistent transport relations governing the three-wave interactions is developed. These transport relations lead to the proper conservation of energy and momentum. Including small wall and bulk plasma losses, parametric and nonlinear characteristics are investigated theoretically and numerically. It is found that in an unbounded medium the saturation period of the signal wave is considerably smaller than in a bounded medium. The signal energy comes from the plasma stream through the idler wave with small depletion of the pump wave amplitude.
