Abstract

In this paper, Backward Wave Oscillator (BWO) full-scale time-dependent numerical experiments have been performed with the use of 2.5D version of 2.5 and 3D, fully electromagnetic PIC-code KARAT. The results are compared with data from experiments on moderately relativistic, high current, short pulse BWO (3-5 kA, 400-650 keV, 12 ns). Agreement was obtained both in the frequency of generation and in output power for different configurations of tubes and various values of guiding magnetic field.
