Paper Abstract

The Proton Maser (PM) introduced by D. Ensely falls within the general class of devices known as transit-time oscillators (TM). A theory for both the small and large amplitude behavior of the intense-beam-driven TTO is summarized. It includes the effects of the beam self-fields and space-charge effects and it has been used to develop expressions which are compared with the results of particle simulations, which are presented in a companion paper.
