Abstract:

The basic concept of the two stream instability and its application to build a microwavemm wave amplifier are reviewed from the perspective of the general usage of high frequency devices. A historical review of the relevant literature is presented with additional discussion of unpublished laboratory notebooks from the Naval Research Laboratory. A summary of the one-dimensional linear theory of the instability, along with the results from one-dimensional nonlinear particle simulation are given which are compared to other amplifier are discussed in comparison to other currently available devices that work in the same range of parameters.
