    "Conducting plates placed above and below the beam" suggest that each plate is in a plane parallel to the plane containing the beam and field. Your masterpiece, alas, differs from this and has the plates perpendicular.

    Back to the drawing board!

    I think you understood the beam to be eminating from one of the plates. This is unlikely to be what is intended (and would be difficult to arrange, anyway).
