Abstract : The final 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 hot tests, through a tunnel of 60 microns in diameter, have given a useful current of 5-6 mA, to be compared with the required 10 mA current. The protection problem of the line input has been examined in greater details. The protecting screens made of tungsten or pyrolytic graphite are in process of realization. (Author)
