Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental study of a relativistic traveling wave oscillator with a tubular electron beam of enlarged cross section. Repetitively pulsed (30 Hz) generation of 10.1-GHz, 80-ns microwave pulses in 1-s batches is realized. The microwave pulse power a level of quasi-steady-state oscillation was 220 ± 44 MW. The driving electron beam (370-keV, 2.4-kA, 107-ns pulsewidth) was transported along the interaction space by a quasi-constant (few seconds in duration) external magnetic field with an induction of 0.6 T. The power efficiency of the generator is 25% ± 5%. The energy in a single microwave pulse is about 15 J as measured with an aperture calorimeter.
