Development of Millimeter Range Traveling-Wave Tube
Инжиниринг в электронике
In this paper, the development of the traveling-wave tube (TWT) prototype in the millimeter range was conducted. The theory of vacuum electron devices used for signal amplification purposes is given in a brief form, and the TWT structure (including its main components) and operating principle are considered. The literature overview on the TWT place in a modern telecommunication networks and its history was made, and the potential applications of TWT in the terahertz range are considered. The problems of development of TWTs in the terahertz and millimeter ranges are summarized. The prototype of traveling-wave tube designed for work in the millimeter range was simulated. Analysis of the simulation results was performed, and the potential trajectory of the future research in the millimeter and terahertz ranges based on the results obtained was outlined.
