No morning gun from the black fort's embrasure,
Awaken with its call!

And to the founder said, "Is aught
Wanting for our array?"

In science:

As mentioned before, RF guns are structures fed by typical RF pulses of several MW. High peak electric field (>100 MV/m) can be easily reached and breakdown phenomena can occur.
Power coupling
To simultaneously suppress the multipole components of the field and to strongly reduce the magnetic field in the coupler region, a new type of coupler for RF guns has been proposed and implemented [GA0, GA1, GA2].
Power coupling
The TE11 mode of the waveguide is converted into a TEM mode of a coaxial line (in the so-called door-knob transition) and the coaxial line excites, on-axis, the accelerating field in the gun.
Power coupling
Figure 12 shows a schematic diagram of an IOT . The electron beam is formed by a gridded, convergent-flow electron gun and confined by an axial magnetic field (not shown).
RF power generation
