Abstract:

Identifiers Graphics, Crestatron. Nonlinear Interaction Theory Several problems are studied which relate to the interaction and efficiency obtainable in a traveling-wave amplifier. Experiments on Traveling-Wave Amplifiers Several experiments on broadband amplifiers of the Crestatron type are reported at S-band and at the UHF fr quencies. Elliptic cavity coupling transducers are analyzed and the use of a ring and bar structure in a high-power Crestatron amplifier is evaluated. Electron Gun Analysis The Poisson cell and analog computer are used to analyze microperveance one and two solid-beam electron guns. A design is developed for a high-density hollow-beam magnetron injection gun. Noise Propagation in P LASMA Interaction An analysis of noise fluctuations and transport on an axially symmetric electron beam is made using both a density function method and a Monte b o l i utili and the results are compared ith previous one-dimensional theories.
