The impact of metal-dielectric layer on wave processes in the electrodynamic system of amplifiers based on Smith-Pursell effect

G. S. Vorobjov, A. S. Krivets, A. A. Shmat’ko


The linear theory of amplifiers applying the Smith–Pursell effect is extended to the impact of metal-dielectric layer and of electron flow thickness on the oscillation excitation conditions in an open waveguide. The wave processes in the amplifier electrodynamic system are investigated theoretically and by experimental simulation.
