Abstract : The patent relates to microwave pulses at power levels in excess of 10 megawatts and of short duration and narrow bandwidth produced by propagating an annular relativistic electron beam carrying currents of 30-40 kA at energies of 200-500 keV through a cylindrical, symmetrical annular, ridged wave guide. The interaction between this beam and a backward wave in the guide leads to the oscillations.
