Abstract:

An investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility of a novel crossed-field amplifier which employs secondary emission from portions of the slow-wave circuit. This circuit is located in the position normally occupied by the sole electrode in a conventional crossed-field amplifier. Power is transferred from the beam to the circuit by virtue of the negative resistance developed when more electrons leave an electrode than are incident at a time when the polarity of the rf voltage on this electrode is positive with respect to the preceding electrode of the circuit.
