Requirements on the Beam for MM- and Sub-MM-Wave Generation

  • J. M. Buzzi
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 178)


Since the pioneering work of J. Nation (1970) and others in the early seventies, the Intense Relativistic Electron Beam (IREB) community has given a new impulse to the development of new electronic tubes, allowing the coverage of new wavelengths with a radical change in the state of the art as regards peak power and average power.
