Abstract:

A circuitless particle beam device for relatively high frequency amplifier or oscillator applications that eliminates the requirement for an internal RF slow wave structure. A circularly polarized RF energy wave propagates on a relatively high density particle beam within an oversized wageguide and interacts with the beam which exhibits a relatively high dielectric constant. The high density beam acts as an active dielectric waveguide serving the dual purpose of a slow wave circuit and amplification source, and accordingly guides and amplifies the RF energy when a condition of beam and wave synchronism is met.
