In this paper, we present the results of investigations of a uniform three-centimeter relativistic backward-wave tube (BWT) with circular waveguide operating mode E01 with pulse power 3 GW and efficiency about 20%. We have obtained a dependence of the radiation pulse duration on the generated power. We discuss the problems involved in shortening the duration of the microwave pulses in oscillators with high microwave field intensity on the surface of the slow-wave structure.
