Abstract:

This report reviews the work accomplished under an internal program at these Laboratories to develop the ESM-171 low-power, X-band coaxial magnetron. The objective of the program was to develop a magnetron capable of a peak power output of 100 watts, tunable over a frequency range of 8500-to-9600 Mc, and capable of 20-to-30 efficiency. This report describes the design approach for the ESM-171 magnetron, reviews a number of problems encountered in building the test models poor efficiency and mode instability, and presents data obtained on the test models.
