Abstract:

This report covers the period May 1, 1999- April 30, 2004 and contains a detailed description of the work conducted by the FY99 MURI Consortium on Innovative Microwave Vacuum Electronics MVE. The participating institutions were the University of California, Davis Lead Institution MIT Stanford University University of Maryland, College Park University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and the University of Wisconsin. The program was tightly focused on the critical need for a multi-disciplinary basic research program focused on 21st Century MVE devices and the education and training essential to the continuation of US preeminence. To ensure the accomplishment of the associated research and teaching goals, the Consortium developed a broad and well-integrated program involving close coordination with Industry and DoD laboratories. The strongly coordinated program drew on the institutions strengths in microwave vacuum electronics, plasma physics, antennas, computational science and engineering, materials science, and thermal engineering, thereby resulting in a multiplicative factor significantly exceeding the sum of the individual programs. The participating institutions possess unparalleled facilities ranging from state-of-the-art measurement and diagnostic instrumentation to complete prototype manufacturing caability as well as strong analytic theory and computational modeling capability.
