It is assumed that the sheet beam with a current of 150 mA moves through a rectangular cross section of 0.32 x 0.13 [mm.sup.2] in the central area of the beam tunnel corresponding to the beam filling factor is 35% with a current density of 360 A/[cm.sup.2].
It is assumed that the pencil beam with a current of 150 mA moves through a round cross section of 0.1 x 0.1 [mm.sup.2] in the central area of the beam tunnel corresponding to the beam filling factor is 60%.
In the simulation, we assume that a sheet electron beam has a cross sectional area of 1.1 x 0.22 [mm.sup.2] (l/2 x w/2, as shown in the inset of Figure 4) in the central area of the beam channel with 13.2 kV voltage and 300 mA current, corresponding to a beam aspect ratio of 5 : 1 and beam filling factor of 25% with a current density of 124 A/[cm.sup.2].
