Crossed-field Microwave Devices, Volume I: Principal Elements of Crossed-Field Devices focuses on the developments, trends, and approaches in the study of crossed-field microwave devices.
The selection first offers information on periodic structures and cathode gun and its static characteristics. Discussions focus on circuits for traveling wave crossed-field tubes; effect of tolerance on interdigital lines; mode spectrum of strapped type magnetron; and electron gun optics and associated static characteristics of injection systems. The text then takes a look at noise and space-charge modes, including preoscillation phenomena in space-charge clouds below the main oscillation threshold; cutoff characteristics of the static magnetron diode; magnetron diode oscillations; and noise in crossed-field electron beams. The manuscript then examines the interaction of beams and circuits, as well as small and large signal theory and experiment.
The selection is a valuable reference for readers interested in the elements of crossed-field microwave devices.
