Abstract : Distributed amplifiers in integrated circuit form wherein dielectric material and electrically conductive material combine to form field emitter cathodes, grids, and anodes in a module forming one or more amplifier cells embedded in a matrix of reactive impedances that form companion stripline-like transmission lines in a vacuum or sufficiently low pressure gas such that electrons remain unscattered during travel over trajectories from cathode to anode in a cell.
