Paper Abstract

The nonlinear dynamics of a reflex diode microwave source are studied by a two-dimensional (2D) numerical simulation and a 1 dimensional (1D) Duffing equation model. Test particle trajectories in a nonlinear model of the potential between the real and virtual cathode shows distinct classes of electron trajectories in the system. The 1D and 2D models evaluated are similar upon comparison.
