Abstract : A transverse field interaction multi-beam amplifier device comprising a structure having, for example, a plurality of discrete cathodes cylindrically located in succession along a central axis of RF propagation. In registration with the cathodes are a respective number of annular collectors located within an outer cylinder which also acts as the structure housing. Intermediate the cathodes and collectors are two additional coaxial cylinders, one having a relatively smaller diameter than the other, with the smaller diameter cyclinder including respective number of discrete grids, while the large cyclinder comprises a structure preferably having a rippled or undulating slow wave wall surface and a respective number of annular slots formed therein.
