Pagination or Media Count:
Research and development work is described on a traveling-wave power amplifier tube employing transverse-wave interaction between the negative synchronous wave and a circuit wave on a balanced structure. The theoretical advantage in this arrangement is the possibility of high-power amplification with high overall efficiency, due to the lack of longitudinal or transverse velocity modulation in the spent beam. Important aspects of output power and gun design are reviewed. Attenuator studies are detailed along with fabrication techniques and test results. All component parts have been completed and assembly of the first tube has begun. Author
