Abstract:

The probe data obtained on the crossed-field stream analyzer are summarized. Detailed calcul tions on space-charge distribution and electron trajectories in a Kino crossed-field gun are analyzed. Some information on the relationship between beam laminarity and cathode width is presented for a flat cathode. The desirability of tilting the cathode is discussed. The determination of Kompfner dip conditions in an M-type amplifier is outlined along with nonlinear calculations on beating-wave gain. Additional experimental information on the S-band crossed-field amplifier was obtained and a new electron gun design is outlined. The analysis of noise generation and propagation in crossed-field devices is treated using both a density function method and a Monte Carlo calculation. Calculations of spacecharge density and potential distributions in planar devices are given. An outline of the design of the experimental noise analyzer is presented. Author
