Research and development work is described on a power amplifier tube employing transverse-wave interaction between the negative synchronous wave and a traveling 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. The initial design parameters are reviewed, and modifications are discussed. The design and fabrication of the attenuator is outlined, and measured results presented. Modifications to the waveguide input and output sections, and to the vacuum windows, are described.
