Abstract:

An evaluation is presented of the possibilities of using the cyclotron wave device as a mixer. Progress in the construction of the two-helix traveling-wave tube mixer is discussed in detail. The low-noise electron gun to be used with the experimental traveling-wave tube mixer is also discussed. The external coupling helix design is reevaluated to insure optimum coupling at all frequencies. A preliminary investigation of the full-frequency mixing device was begun.
