Abstract : Additional measurements with the TE sub 10, 1, 1 monotron oscillator are reported. The results support the conclusion that the observed milimeter-wave output power is the result of harmonic generation. The program to observe monotron oscillations or beam negative resistance effects is described. So far these effects have not been observed. Changes are described which have been made to increase the stability and flexibility of the experimental system. The method of measuring beam voltage was checked. It was found that because of magnetic field fringing the values of beam voltage obtained from orbit diameter measurements may be in error. The plans to remedy this situation by redesign of the polepiece are discussed. Possibilities for improving the previous analytical work are considered. The angular velocity modulation resulting from relativistic mass effects is discussed. This effect appears to be of considerable importance in devices of this type. The relative importance of cavity fields other than azimuthal electric field is reviewed. (Author)
