Paper Abstract

A plasma filling of a microwave tube cancels space-charge effects and has other benefits. Unfortunately, ion plasma oscillations can generate noise, frequency shifts, and even terminate beam current. A possible solution is to have a transverse ion flow, which convects the ion instability away before it can grow to disruptive levels. Keywords, stabilization, plasma-filled tubes, instability control.
