Abstract : The basic problem is to investigate the coupling processes between rotating electron beam modes and circuit modes. The problem is to determine analytically and experimentally these coupling processes, and to evaluate them for device application. An experimental device has been constructed and tested which exhibits backward-wave oscillations and forward-wave gain. Power output of 720 watts has been obtained in one experiment. Analytical results in the form of a general wave guide coupled-mode theory are available for guidance and understanding of the experimental results. (Author)
