Control electrode turn off has been demonstrated at X-band, using two different control electrode geometries. A 200 hour life test has been completed on a tube operating at 100 kw peak power output with control electrode turn off. Dc hold off and field distribution studies have yielded geometries with dc breakdown voltages greater than 25 kv. Broad band, forward wave circuits have been examined. One of these circuits, the space harmonic choke supported interdigital line, is approaching hot test. Author
