Experiments with EBW setup with possibility of right angle beam turn
The results of electron beam right angle turn experiments in EBW setup are presented. For beam turn we use an alpha magnet and quadrupole lenses. As a result the cathode is not exposed to the vapors of the workpiece. The use of this technique will make it possible to expand the possibilities of using an electron beam in the processes of electron beam welding and thermal processing of materials for the synthesis of heat-resistant composites and compounds, the production of nanopowders and reactive deposition of protective coatings, where there is increased gas evolution and contamination in the technological volume.
