Abstract : This analysis is concerned with the amplification of the synchronous waves in an electrostatic quadrupole pump field. Abrupt reversals of the magnetic field between the pump and the inputand output-couplers make it possible to use Cuccia-couplers coupling to the fast cyclotron wave. The small-signal gain was calculated under the assumption of a filamentary electron beam. An experimental tube was built, and measurements of gain and bandwidth performed. A maximum gain of 16 db was observed. (Author)
