  • Patent number: 5714913
    Abstract: A discrete monotron oscillator for use in a high power microwave device is formed with a microwave oscillator having a half-wavelength resonant coaxial microwave cavity operating in fundamental TEM mode for microwave oscillation with an inner conductor defining a drift tube for propagating an electron beam and an outer conductor coaxial with the inner conductor. The inner conductor defines a modulating gap and an extraction gap downstream of the modulating gap. The modulating gap and the extraction gap connect the coaxial microwave cavity with the drift tube so that energy for the microwave oscillation is extracted from the electron beam at the extraction gap and modulates the electron beam at the modulating gap. For high power operation, an annular electron beam is used.

  • Patent number: 5559477
    Abstract: Five CMOS inverters are connected in a series ring to form an oscillator. Current to the inverters is controlled to establish gate delays of the inverters and thereby determine a frequency of oscillation of the oscillator. The oscillator is included in a phase locked loop where the gate delay of the inverters is selected by selecting the value of a frequency divider of the phase locked loop. The selected delay is used to form a train of pulses with a desired duty cycle.

  • Patent number: 5159618
    Abstract: A X-ray emissive vacuum tube is fully enclosed in an electrically conductive casing with electrical terminals through which bias potentials are applied to the tube. Occasionally an arc discharge occurs between electrodes within the tube generating a high frequency signal which ordinarily resonates with the conventional casings. However a resistive coating is applied to the inner surface of the case. That coating has a resistivity sufficient to lower the Q of the case to a value at which significant ringing does not result from the discharge.

  • Patent number: 5045825
    Abstract: A broadband, varactor-tuned shorted coax resonator is provided with a single point coupling port that facilitates coupling of discrete circuitry to the distributed resonator. The coupling port is defined by adding a second shorted coax line across the end of the first. The outer conductors of the two lines are interconnected. The inner conductors of the two lines are serially coupled and define a coupling gap, either along their length or at their ends, across which discrete circuitry can be connected. In a preferred form of the invention, the discrete circuitry is positioned in a region within the periphery of one of the inner conductors in order to provide an electromagnetic shield for the circuitry.

  • Patent number: 4496913
    Abstract: A mm wavelength power combiner comprising an open resonator comprising a r of confronting concave reflectors which can be either spherical or parabolic. The resonator dimensions are many times the wavelength of the energy sources to be combined. A plurality of mm wave energy sources are applied to the resonator in such a way that the great majority of the energy bounces back and forth between the reflectors near the axis thereof in the fundamental or Gaussian mode. The design minimizes multimoding and diffraction losses.

  • Patent number: 4211984
    Abstract: A high frequency industrial generator, especially suitable for supplying power to a device for heating an electric poorly conducting substance such as a fleece of a cellulose material, comprises two hollow concentrically disposed conductors each of square section and supporting respective electrode plates of an associated capacitor. All the plates are vertically disposed and lie at right angles to the walls of the respective conductors. In the middle of the electric plates there is situated a triode electron tube electrically connected to the plates to form an oscillating circuit. The anode potential and cooling water supply for the electron tube is located within a field free space inside the internal conductor. One set of electrode plates can be adjusted relative to the other to adjust the frequency and the arrangement ensures only low electrical losses are incurred.

    Abstract: An output coaxial cavity for high power electron tubes is described in which the output coupler is directly connected to an intermediate coaxial conductor of the coaxial cavity at a distance from the tube that is greater than one-quarter wavelength and less than one-half wavelength over the tuning range of the cavity. The intermediate coaxial conductor is spaced between and concentric with an inner conductor and an outer conductor of the coaxial cavity. A first shorting stub is positioned between the inner conductor and the intermediate conductor and a second shorting stub is coupled between the intermediate conductor and the outer conductor. The positions of the shorting stubs are arranged to resonate the cavity at the desired tuning frequency.
