Paper Abstract

An 0-type carcinotron (backward-wave oscillator) operating between 850 - 1000 GHz was built with the support of the European Space Agency. It generates an RF power level of 0.5 mW minimum across the bandwidth and the maximum RF power reaches 2.3 mW. The operating high voltage varies from 4.9 to 8.8 kV. The total power consumption is less than 200 W. The spectral analysis has been made. The linewidth is less than 1 MHz in free-running operation.
