Millimeter-wave orotron oscillation - Part I: Theory

Abstract

Physical principles of operation of the orotton, a Smith-Purcell free-electron laser in the millimeter and submillimeter wavelength regions, are described. Electron bunching in this device occurs when the electron beam interacts with an evanescent component of the electromagnetic wave that propagates along the metallic diffraction grating of the device with… (More)
