A theory is presented for the design of an ideal non-relativistic circular beam system including a charged-particle emitting diode, a diode aperture, a circular beam tunnel, and a focusing magnetic field that matches the beam from the emitter to the beam tunnel. The magnetic field is determined by balancing the forces throughout the gun and transport sections of the beam system. OMNITRAK simulations are performed, validating theory. As applications, a circular electron beam system is discussed for space-charge-dominated beam experiments such as the University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER), and a circular ion beam system is discussed for high energy density physics (HEDP) research.
