Abstract:

We discuss how a uniform focusing magnetic field can affect the performance of a microwave source such as a backward-wave oscillator. It is argued that the uniform magnetic field can cause the existence of a free-electron laser within the waveguide the Doppler up andor down-shifted cyclotron radiation can undergo amplification or absorption due to interaction of electrons in helical orbits with electromagnetic radiation.
