Paper Abstract

We have developed a self-consistent theory for a relativistic backward wave oscillator (BWO) taking into account the interaction of fast cyclotron waves of the electron beam with both the operating contrary wave and the forward wave. The theory describes the extraction of electromagnetic energy from the interaction space, providing a correct description of the operation of a relativistic BWO in which the field structure is a product of the self- consistent solution. The theory suggests ways in which the requirement of a guide magnetic field in such devices can be reduced.
