Repetitively Pulsed Backward-Wave Oscillator Investigations
NEW MEXICO UNIV ALBUQUERQUE DEPT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
Pagination or Media Count:
The Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Laboratory at the University of New Mexico UNM has completed its initial phase of research on repetitively pulsed high power backward-wave oscillators BWOs. The aggressive program that we had established seeked to address three basic goals 1 Understand the physics of high efficiency vacuum BWOs using the Sinus-6 repetitively pulsed electron beam accelerator, 2 study vacuum and initiate plasma-filled long pulse BWO operations using the modified PI-110A accelerator, and 3 Study the prospects of incorporating ferroelectric ceramic cathodes in high power electron beam-driven microwave sources to improve their operations in the long pulse regime.
