Abstract:

Significant progress was recorded on the exploration of the physics of the Orbitron microwave source. Early, in the work, continuous emission was observed in the range up tp 26 GHz. A numerical code was developed for computing collective electron oscillations. Later, repeatable pulsed operation was observed up to 430 GHz at 0.2 watts in a two microsecond pulse. Spurious emissions up to 1000 GHz have also been observed. Keywords include Plasma, Orbitron, and Microwaves.
