Abstract

The RF field profile function satisfies a wave equation in which the ac beam current appears as a source. The wave equation is solved simultaneously with the electron equations of motion. The results of calculations are compared with experimental data for the efficiency, starting current, and operating frequency. The gyromonotron studied in this work has a tapered cavity structure to enhance efficiency, and a low Q factor to enhance output power. A strong self-consistent field effect is observed in the behavior of the starting current.
