Paper Abstract

Diocotron stability properties in a relativistic electron flow generated inside high power magnetrons are investigated within the framework of a linearized macroscopic cold fluid model. A massless guiding-center approximation has been made in this theoretical calculation to be analytically tractable. Closed algebraic dispersion relations obtained in this article are fully relativistic and fully electro-magnetic. Influence of the anode resonator effects are also fully incorporated. Numerical investigation of the dispersion relation is carried out for a broad range of system parameters and results will be presented.
