Abstract

The results of numerical modeling and experimental investigation of a high-power, resonance relativistic backward wave tube are presented. By using the working TM01 mode reflections from the ends of the electrodynamic system, optimum conditions for the electron beam interaction with both the (-1)st harmonic of the backward electromagnetic wave and the main harmonic of the concurrent wave are achieved. A single mode generation with 5 GW output power and a 30% efficiency was obtained in experiments at a frequency of 3.6 GHz. The working frequency can be controlled within 15% (at the half maximum power level) by changing the slow-wave structure period at the constant electron beam parameters.
