Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Nuclear Physics Institute at Tomsk Polytechnic University as follows The contractor will evaluate the concept of hybrid antenna-amplifiers, i.e., devices representing a combination of a surface wave antenna and a traveling wave tube. Theoretical investigations and numerical simulations including particle-in-cell simulations and complex calculations using existing electromagnetic codes as well as prototype experiments on electron beam transport in the absence of the antenna feed signal and microwave transmission in the absence of the electron beam are planned.
