Paper Abstract

1407_28Experimental and theoretical studies of high power microwave generation from a short pulse backward-wave oscillator (BWO) experiment are reported. The electron beam has an energy of about 600 keV with currents in the 2 kA range. Microwave radiation at a frequency above 12.6 GHz is observed to be generated. Measurements thus far are consistent with the TM01 mode that is predicted to be excited with the electron beam and slow wave structure parameters.
