Abstract : The objective of this work is to construct a half-millimeter 'Backward wave oscillator' with a power level in the range of half-a-watt. Electron gun construction and beam transmission have been improved. Spurious phenomena are now completely eliminated. A useful current of about 10mA can be expected through a tunnel of 60 microns in diameter. The protection problem of the line input is not yet solved in the first experimental tubes. (Author)
