Abstract : The patent describes a traveling wave tube provided with a slow-wave, electron beam interaction means in the form of a single wire conductor coiled into at least two parallel series of aligned turns; in each series, the turns are of identical size and configuration. In one form, all the turns have rectilinear stretches of equal length that are in a common plane; an electron beam source, a collector, a sole electrode and electric and magnetic fields direct a sheet beam alongside the rectilinear stretches outside the turns. In another form, the turns of the single wire conductor are almost entirely circular and in figure-eight configuration viewed endwise; electron beams are directed through either one or both series of turns.
