Abstract:

This report provides a basis for evaluating the current and near- future development of relativistic-electron-beam REB technology for the generation of microwave radiation. Magnetrons, gyrotrons, and Raman scattering are examined in some detail and references are cited for several other conversion schemes. The status of repetitively pulsed REB generation is then reviewed and two hypothetical systems are constructed from the conversion schemes and generators that were considered earlier. Finally, some of the advantages such as high power and compact size and disadvantages such as unproven technology are summarized. Author
