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. Design corrections are discussed and the present status of the first tube is described. Preliminary X-band design considerations are also discussed. Author
