Very Interesting. I printed out and read the paper mentioned and am very intrigued. Someone might want to investigate this. The use of dense D2 targets (D2O ice) for accelerated deuteron beams exiting one of these plasma windows comes to mind. Neuts generated at atmospheric pressure in solid D20 is a neat concept. The drawback is 100 to 200 kev deuteron beams would be needed. Out of the quickie amateur class.

The helical traveling wave pump tube idea is interesting, but best left to someone normally involved with microwaves and TWTs.
