Abstract:

The paper describes an investigation of a periodic transmission line intended for use as a coupler in a transverse-field electron beam device. The field distribution, interaction impedance and phase diagram are calculated. A line operating at 1000 Mcs is constructed and its properties are measured. Despite a favourable interaction impedance the line is not well suited as coupler at low frequencies 1000 Mcs since large mechanical dimensions are required in order to obtain low phase velocity. However, the line may be used as coupler at higher frequencies. Author
