DEVELOPMENT OF A KU-BAND CROSSED-FIELD AMPLIFIER.
SETON HALL UNIV JERSEY CITY N J
This is the final engineering report on a Ku-band crossedfield amplifier development program. The approach used here is essentially one of scaling the slow wave circuit of a proven X-band crossed-field amplifier. Electrical and mechanical design factors and subsequent modifications thereto are treated in detail along with a description of the test equipment used to evaluate the design. Operating performance data reveals the re-entrant stream backward wave crossed-field amplifier, as dedeveloped on this program, to be capable of gains in excess of 20 db over a wide frequency band. The tube has also demonstrated a peak power output of 200 kw. These data are indicative of the characteristics of this particular slow wave circuit a choke supported interdigital line and the relative ease of its adaptability to other frequency bands. Author
