Paper Abstract

The present work continues experimental investigations of high-power microwave oscillator driven by relativistic electron beam. We studied the possibility to design a microwave source of microsecond pulse duration, usually restricted by plasma generation due to a few reasons. It is shown that the breakdown is determined by microwave discharge, initiated, in turn, by electron beam destruction and bombardment of the slow-wave structure walls. To depress the process of plasma accumulation we propose to apply a gyrotron with axially-symmetrical TE- type mode.
