After outlining the main trend of magnetron development before the war, with particular reference to the factors which played a part in its rapid progress during the war, the paper describes the events leading to the development, in June 1940, of the first high-power pulsed magnetron for a wavelength of 10 cm. The multi-resonator system developed by Randall and Boot at Birmingham University and the large oxide cathode developed by Gutton in Paris for a different type of magnetron were combined… CONTINUE READING
