Abstract : A high frequency electromagnetic wave generator is disclosed which comprises an electron gun which disrects an electron beam through a region generally adjacent a diffraction grating. The grating cooperates with an opposed reflecting surface to produce a standing electromagnetic wave. The reflector comprises a highly reflective dielectric coated mirror. Supporting means for the diffraction grating may also comprise a reflective dielectric surface.
