Abstract:

Research was continued on the design, development and fabrication of six high-power, crossed-field amplifiers. Substantial progress toward fabrication and test of Tube No. 1 was made. Construction of parts for subsequent tubes is nearing completion. Additional tests on the gun have yielded a non-critical design wherein the gridto-cathode voltage was substantially reduced over previous designs. Construction of this gun is completed except for final assembly within the tube. The computer study has yielded the RF circuit power for the complete two-section tube. At the band edges, these results are as expected. At Mid-band, certain anomalies in power build-up were observed. Sufficient cold isolation across the sever was obtained with a simple sole-segment geometry. It is shown that lossy material in the sole region has little effect on the sole stop-band structure, and will not be used within the tube. Author
