Abstract:

A general 2-dimensional nonlinear interaction theory is developed for traveling-wave tubes and specialized to include klystrons. The equationsARE DEVELOPED USING A Lagrangian analysis and the space-charge fields are found by 2-dimensional Greens function techniques. Experimental data are given on a UHF Crestatron designed to operate over the frequency range from 300 to 900 mc. Both cold-test and hot-test measurements are given on tube No. 4 operating under pulsed conditions. The design of a microperveance-one axially symmetric electron gun with the Poisson cell is outlined and detailed information on the space-charge density distribution and potential gradient at the cathode are given.
