Abstract : This report describes the results of research during the first year of a proposed three year project to provide a critical evaluation of the attributes of plasma-filled high power backward-wave oscillators when compared with high efficiency vacuum backward-wave oscillators. Since the direction of the program at the University of New Mexico was altered by the newly initiated MURII triservices funding, only about one third of the originally proposed tasks were accomplished. Nevertheless, important new results have been obtained and will continue to be investigated under the auspices of the MURI program.
