Abstract:

Coherent microwave radiation is generated in and transmitted through a waveguidedrift tube by means of an injected relativistic electron beam the parameters of which, in combination with the waveguidedrift tube geometry and dimensions effect a virtual cathode oscillation condition within the waveguidedrift tube. Tuning of the device is accomplished by manipulation of the relativistic electron beam parameters andor waveguidedrift tube physical dimensions. Author
