This patent discloses a source of coherent electromagnetic radiation capable of generating or amplifying waves in the centimeter, millimeter, and submillimeter wavelength range. An annular beam of gyrating electrons is produced which is then compressed to its paraxial position by means of a solenoid magnetic field around the wave-guide. This electron beam is also subjected to a transverse motion in an interaction region by a longitudinal rippled wiggler magnetic field. Such a field is generated by a periodic assembly of rings magnetized in the axial direction. The electron beam during its accelerated motion generates or amplifies coherent electromagnectic radiation in the centimeter, millimeter, or submillimeter range.
