A theoretical and experimental program on pulsed microwave generation without RF input signals is in progress. An experimental scheme which may accomplish this is proposed. Further investigations of high efficiency generation with the existing type of pulse generator are in progress. The experiments on components for the K-band high efficiency generator are continuing. A new approach to pulsed microwave generation using related pulsed field technology but new RF mechanisms involving microwave reflection from moving magnetic shock fronts is being examined. As proposed in the preceding report, efforts to reach shorter millimeter wavelength have been tabled, pending the development of better RF components. Pulsed field work is associated with the corona problem existing in the 100 kilogauss apparatus and with the development of pulsed fields for extended volumes. Author
