The objective of this paper was to investigate how the frequency of an electromagnetic pulse generated by an inward-emitting coaxial vircator is dependent upon the anode to cathode gap distance (AK-gap) in the vircator. Experimental tests of three different AK-gaps 29.5, 32, and 34.5 mm, were conducted with the high power microwave (HPM) system Bofors HPM… CONTINUE READING
