Abstract:

A crossed-field microwave power tube. Electrons are emitted from a tubular electrode at ground potential. The electrons are accelerated by an electric field toward a high voltage anode located within the tubular electrode. A magnetic field is oriented along the axis of the tube the magnetic field is perpendicular to the electric field. The electrons follow curved paths in the space between the tubular electrode and the anode, while producing electromagnetic radiation in a TEM mode. The TEM radiation is easily coupled from the tube.
