Abstract : Coherent microwave radiation is generated in and transmitted through a waveguide/drift tube by means of an injected relativistic electron beam the parameters of which, in combination with the waveguide/drift tube geometry and dimensions effect a virtual cathode oscillation condition within the waveguide/drift tube. Tuning of the device is accomplished by manipulation of the relativistic electron beam parameters and/or waveguide/drift tube physical dimensions. (Author)
