High power, high efficiency millimeter wavelength traveling wave tubes for high rate communications from deep space
Author and Affiliation:
Dayton, James A., Jr.(NASA Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, OH, United States)
Abstract: The high-power transmitters needed for high data rate communications from deep space will require a new class of compact, high efficiency traveling wave tubes (TWT's). Many of the recent TWT developments in the microwave frequency range are generically applicable to mm wave devices, in particular much of the technology of computer aided design, cathodes, and multistage depressed collectors. However, because TWT dimensions scale approximately with wavelength, mm wave devices will be physically much smaller with inherently more stringent fabrication tolerances and sensitivity to thermal dissipation.
