Abstract : The purpose of this study is to develop a novel, injected-beam, non - re-entrant crossed-field amplifier employing a cycloiding electron beam. Fast bunching of the cycloiding beam occurs since the unfavorably phased electrons are collected on the sole as interaction with the RF field begins. The activity of the fourth quarter centered around testing a cycloiding-beam amplifier in a demountable vacuum enclosure. To date, the testing has mainly been effective in uncovering situations requiring correction in the tube and test equipment. Therefore, a complete evaluation of the amplifier remains to be accomplished, although evidence of the quick bunching of the beam has already been demonstrated. (Author)
