Additionally, the research suggests the possibility to use layered graphene as mirrors for electron beams. 'It may be possible to use them as beam splitters', says Tromp.
During oscillating EBW, the electron beam is moved along the walls of the penetration channel, causing a periodic change in the temperature field.
Two DPO4043 digital storage oscilloscopes were used to record all electrical signals from the Rogowski coil, high-voltage probe, five-channel PIN diode, and energetic electron beams through the Faraday cup.

The HCPEB equipment, used in this work, is a Nadezhda-2 type, which can produce an electron beam with low electron energy in the range of 10-40 kV, high peak current with the range of [10.sup.2]-[10.sup.3] A/[cm.sup.2], short pulsed duration of 0.5-1.5 [micro]s, and cross-section area 30 [cm.sup.2].
tennessee (0.72 plus or minus 0.02 kGy and 0.60 plus or minus 0.01 kGy on TSA and XLDA, respectively) to electron beam irradiation.
aureus showed that gamma irradiation was more effective than electron beam at the same absorbed dose, and [D.sub.10] values ranged from 0.84 to 0.93 kGy for L.
Recently, several mathematical models have been developed, describing the individual stages of the process of electron beam melting in an intermediate container (cold hearth): melting of the initial charge, mixing and evaporation of the metal and impurities in an intermediate container, formation of the ingot in the solidification mould (including the displacement of the shrinkage cavity), cooling of the ingot (3-6).

This article deals with the characterization of porosity, permeability and integrity of conductive and non-conductive rubber and synthetic rubber materials that can be determined by utilizing a novel electron beam technology and electronic instrumentation in an open atmosphere for 100% testing in a non-destrucfive, real-time, on-line testing system.
What's new: Surfi-Sculpt, which uses electron beams to specifically remodel metal surfaces by producing protrusions and intrusions, or holes.
Then, using an electron accelerator, the researchers irradiated the fragments with electron beams. The electrons activated the polymerization agent, which stitched the monomers together into polymers, consolidating the polychrome.
