Abstract:

The electrical and mechanical design and evaluation are presented of an experimental model, high-power, broadband, pulsed, integral-cavity triode amplifier tube with integrated radio frequency circuitry. The experimental model amplifier incorporates broadband input circuitry in addition to the broadband output circuitry and is designated the Model C Coaxitron. The amplifier was successfully tested and fulfills all objectives. The Model C Coaxitron was operated with a 25 microsecond pulse duration and a 0.01 minimum duty factor at power outputs in excess of 5 megawatts at 5 frequencies from 400 to 450 mc, with efficiencies as high as 44, a power gain of 201, and with exceptional stability. Typical test data is given as well as a description of accessory equipment. The constructional features of the Coaxitron are shown and the design procedure used is outlined in detail. Author
