Particle-in-Cell Simulation of a Spatial-Harmonic Magnetron With a Cold Secondary Emission Cathode


A 16-vane millimeter-wave spatial-harmonic magnetron (SHM) with a cold secondary emission cathode is examined by the use of a 3-D particle-in-cell (PIC) code embedded in CST Particle Studio. Simulations of the SHM are performed without artificial RF priming and without assuming restrictive assumptions on the mode of operation or on the number of harmonics… (More)
