Abstract : The first interim engineering report on a Ku-band crossed-field amplifier development program is presented. Crossed-field amplifier experience at S-F-D laboratories is reviewed and it is shown that the amplifier circuit best suited for this program is a choke supported interdigital line. This circuit has been proved electronically sound at X-band and the Ku-band dispersion curve presented in this report indicates that it is readily scalable to higher frequencies. Impedance matching transformer studies, using brass cold test models, exhibit a very low VSWR. (Author)
