Abstract:

A linear theory is developed for traveling-wave tubes that is based upon a periodic model for the slow-wave structure. In the application of this theory, as many space harmonics as desired can be included. If only the fundamental spatial components are retained, the theory reduces to a form that is in close agreement with J. R. Pierces theory of the forward-wave amplifier. Similarly, if only the dominant space harmonics of backward-wave operation are retained, the results are essentially the same as those found by H. R. Johnson. Author
