Abstract : The patent describes a traveling wave tube amplifier device which suppresses random oscillations through the entire length of the traveling wave tube. The solid side walls have a series of resonant slots which are structurally coupled to one another through the wall and lossy load along the entire length of the traveling wave tube. The slots are resonant at a frequency above the operating band of the tube, but below the lower edge of its stop band.
