Abstract:

A series of trajectory plots for a reduced diameter P sub mu 20 gun is shown. A reasonably well-behaved beam throughout the gun region is obtained. The electrostatically focused tube using one of the improved P sub mu 4.46 guns is seen to yield only fair transmission to the collector at reduced voltages. Some low-level oscillations appear to limit the transmission. The revised design of the 100-watt Crestatrons has resulted in a tube with sufficient gain and power output. Only very minor modifications in the design have been found to be necessary for the final tubes. Author
