Paper Abstract

We investigate the parameters of millimeter-range back-wave oscillator (BWO) developed with the use of a compact RADAN SEF-303A repetitive accelerator. The maximal repetition rate of this oscillator reaches 10 p.p.s. and is determined by thermal operation mode of the pulsed transporting solenoid. With the electron beam power ranging between 350 - 400 MW, the BWO which operated at the frequency 70 GHz had an output microwave power of 60 MW and an efficiency of 15%. For the described millimeter-range BWO the calculated starting current was 0.6 kA, the operating current 1.5 kA, and the required electron energy 270 keV. These parameters were close to those obtained experimentally.
