Abstract:

Impedance calculations have previously been made on a gyrotron operating with a magnetron circuit in the 2pi-mode and cutoff constants were determined and impedance calculations were made for values of the ratio of vane radius to the outer waveguide radius from 0.15 to 1.00. The normalized interaction impedance and the stream voltage was then calculated for each of these magnetron circuit configurations. In this paper, calculations have been made of interaction impedance and stream voltage to achieve operation in the pi- mode. The pi-mode has the advantage of having higher impedance values than the 2pi-mode. This advantage is offset by the necessity of strapping the vanes of the magnetron. These results for the pi-mode are compared with the 2pi-mode and also with a smooth waveguide operating in a Te sub n1 mode. The advantages and disadvantages of all three configurations are discussed. Author
