Abstract : This effort is the first program to develop high power solid state microwave oscillators to compete with and eventually replace magnetrons in the 100 to 200 watt range at X and Ku-bands. The Limitated Space-charge Accumulation (LSA) mode in GaAs was developed to a point that produced 100 watts peak and 200 mw average power at X-band and 150 watts peak at Ku-band. (Author)
