Abstract

Previous numerical calculation predicts efficiencies of 25-30% for uniform BWOs over a wider range of beam parameters than for nonuniform BWOs. This new model includes the interaction between the electron beam and the reflected forward traveling wave. For efficient BWO operation, it is important that the backward traveling wave and the reflected forward traveling wave are properly matched at the cutoff neck and the adiabatic transition into the output waveguide.
