Nonlinear dynamics in a reflex diode


Potentials in high current reflexing electron diodes such as vircators are dominated by space charge effects,<sup>1</sup> and are rapidly time varying and nonlinear because of the oscillating virtual cathode and strong particle bunching. Previous experiments<sup>2</sup> showed the stochastic character of the oscillating electromagnetic fields. The dynamical… (More)
