A numerical simulation study of the high-power microwave generation from the vircator (virtual cathode oscillator) is carried out for coaxial diode structure by using a three-dimensional particle-in-cell (PIC) code called MAGIC. The coaxial vircator has a centered annular cathode body, cathode ring and cylindrical meshed-anode in order to enlarge the active(More)
Having the merits of conceptual simplicity, high-output-power capacity, and wide tuning characteristics, the vircator (virtual cathode oscillator) has been investigated as a high-power microwave (HPM) generator. In axial vircator, the power, frequency, and pulsewidth are all sensitive to the cathode shape, and the frequency depends strongly on the(More)
