On the Theory of Synchronization of a Two-Mode Electron Maser with a Hard Excitation

Background and Objectives: Medium-power (10–100 W) THz continuous-wave electron cyclotron masers (gyrotrons) are of great interest for many applications, such as spectroscopy with dynamic nuclear polarization, plasma diagnostics, non-destructive testing, remote detection of radioactive materials, biomedical applications, etc. For these applications, a high frequency stability is required, with the possibility of frequency tuning within 1–2 GHz.

Simulation of a Sub-THz Traveling Wave Tube with Multiple Sheet Electron Beam

Background and Objectives: Many applications, such as highdata-rate wireless communications, spectroscopy, high-resolution radar, biomedical imaging, security, etc. require compact highpower sources of sub-THz radiation. Traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers are the most promising candidates for such sources combining 10–100 W power and wide b andwidth. Here we present the results of design and simulation of a 0.2 THz TWT with a grating slow-wave structure (SWS) and electron-optical system (EOS) with three elliptic-sha ped beams.
