Title: Coupling output of multichannel high power microwaves

Abstract

The coupling output of multichannel high power microwaves is a promising technique for the development of high power microwave technologies, as it can enhance the output capacities of presently studied devices. According to the investigations on the spatial filtering method and waveguide filtering method, the hybrid filtering method is proposed for the coupling output of multichannel high power microwaves. As an example, a specific structure is designed for the coupling output of S/X/X band three-channel high power microwaves and investigated with the hybrid filtering method. In the experiments, a pulse of 4 GW X band beat waves and a pulse of 1.8 GW S band microwave are obtained.

  • A fast transimpedance multichannel amplifier has been designed, fabricated in CMOS 1.2-{micro}m technology and tested. Each channel consists of a current sensitive preamplifier followed by a voltage amplification stage and an on-chip buffer able to drive 50 {Omega} loads with an output range of {+-}800 mV. Measured peaking time at the output is 40 ns and the circuit recovers to baseline in 90 ns. This results in a counting capability of more than 10{sup 7} hits/s. Signals of both polarities can be handled. The first two stages consume a total of 2 mW per channel and the 50 {Omega} buffermore » consumes another 17 mW. The equivalent noise charge (ENC) is 1,100 e{sup {minus}} rms with a slope of 40e{sup {minus}}/pF. The IC is intended for use in gas and solid-state detectors with high particle rate and extensive charge release as in high energy calorimetry.« less
  • Relativistic orotrons from which the radiation is coupled out by diffraction were tested in the 8-mm and 5-mm wavelength regions. The relativistic particles were injected by the Sinus-6 accelerator operated in single and repeated pulses, with the electron energy varied over the range of 400-650 keV and the current of the hollow beam varied between 0.5 and 7 kA at a pulse length of 25 ns. In the single-mode operation hot-carrier detector and a calorimeter detected a power of 50 MW at the wavelength of 5.5 + or - 0.1 mm and a power of 120 MW at 8.0 +more » or - 0.2 mm at an efficiency of about 5 percent. In the 8-mm orotron emission at the wavelength of 4.3 + or 0.2 mm was observed, with a power of 5 MW. 7 references.« less
  • Experiment and simulation demonstrate high power microwave generation at 9 GHz using a 9-cm-diam, 400-keV, 7-kA annular electron beam. The beam is propagated in a coaxial drift tube between inner and outer conductors, a configuration which increases the available beam current and reduces the surface fields from existing high power sources. The microwave interaction is provided by an extended length loaded cavity, overcoming the limitations of radiative loss and low quality factor usually imposed by the coaxial geometry. A coupler samples 25 MW of the total 200 MW produced by the beam-cavity interaction. Simulations indicate that the 7% efficiency canmore » be significantly improved by optimizing the interaction length.« less
  • We report theoretical and experimental results from research into coaxial extraction of high-power microwaves from {ital X}-band traveling wave tube amplifiers. Power levels exceeding 60 MW have been measured at 9.1 GHz. The output level is relatively constant for the full 70 ns duration of the 700 kV, 500 A electron beam pulse. Results indicate that this coaxial geometry is broadband when compared to traditional, highly tuned radial extraction and may thus have applications in a range of high-power microwave devices. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
