In presenting to you this youngest member of the electron tube family, I am both aided and embarrassed by its family history. I am aided by the fact that you are already acquainted with electrons, so that I need waste no time in explanation or argument regarding their existence. You believe in these little cannon balls which jump out of the hot filament, fly across the vacuum, and plunge into the anode. You have seen them heat the tungsten anode of an X-ray tube to its melting-point in a… 
Review of the relativistic magnetron
The cavity magnetron is the most compact, efficient source of high-power microwave (HPM) radiation. The imprint that the magnetron has had on the world is comparable to the invention of the nuclear
Electronic valve instabilities and Mode jumps
This article reviews the invention of the electronic valve (lightbulb, audion, diode, triode and magnetron) and their modern counterpart (diode sputter ion pump and the diode parallel-plate RIE
A fully kinetic model for the electron flow in a crossed field device
Using the kinetic description, a self-consistent model for the electron flow in the crossed electromagnetic field configuration observed in a smooth-bore magnetron was developed and it was possible to characterize the regime transition, the stability transition, and the mode transitions.

The improved magnetron modelling was achieved by exploiting a newly-developed software tool to automate the model definition in command-line solvers, and has demonstrated a good improvement on X-band magnetron simulation trials.
Development of the first Soviet three-coordinate L-band pulsed radar in Kharkov before WWII
The subject of this paper is the complicated, sometimes dramatic, and never-published events around the development of the L-band magnetrons and pulsed radar in Kharkov, Ukraine (then the USSR), in
Magnetron Sputtering vs. Electrodeposition for Hard Chrome Coatings: A Comparison of Environmental and Economic Performances
From the study, it appears that while magnetron sputtering greatly reduces hexavalent chromium emissions over the production, it has an increased electricity consumption mostly due to its lower production capacity, thus leading to more greenhouse gas emissions.
Theoretical signal-to-noise ratio of a slotted surface coil for magnetic resonance imaging
The analytical expression for the signal-to-noise ratio of a slotted surface coil with an arbitrary number of slots was derived using the quasi-static approach. This surface coil based on the
