This study proposes a theory to separately diagnose the beam-wave dynamics of backward wave (BW) and forward wave (FW) interactions in the frequency-tunable gyrotron. It is clarified that the BW interaction would dominant the feedback mechanism regardless of the cavity structure resonance. The FW interaction effect is found to be minor in small signal… CONTINUE READING
