Paper Abstract

Preliminary experimental and theoretical results are reported on priming and phase locking of high power cavity vircators. Experimentally, we examine the selection criteria and performance of rectangular and cylindrical resonant cavity vircators. Theoretically, we conduct phenomenological modeling of a magnetron driven cavity vircator. In addition, we are undertaking basic vircator instability analysis to determine the linear growth rate and non-linear saturation physics.
