Paper Abstract

The results of theoretical studies of virtual cathode microwave devices are reported. The analytic calculation for the space-charge limit current of intense relativistic electron beam in arbitraty cross-sectional waveguide and resonator is derived in detail by the Green's function method. The space-charge field of single charged sheath in cylindrical cavity, and the behavior of virtual cathode phenomenon relevant to time in cylindrical drifting space are calculated and analyzed by means of Green function method and virtual displacement method. And finally, the phase and frequency locking on power combining of vircator are also presented and analyzed.
