Abstract : A gun of perveance 4.46 with an Einzel lens was tested in a beam analyzer in conjunction with a new beam collector. Secondary emission from this collector was eliminated, permitting accurate measurements to be made on the interception onALL GUN ELECTRODES. A well behaved and controllable electron beam was obtained. The digital computer program to analyze axially symmetric guns is in the check-out stage. Work on the new 100-300 mc crestatrons is under way. The electrical and mechanical designs on the prototype tubes were completed. Cold test results are presented. (Author)
