    Abstract

    This paper presents the first experimental results of an extended interaction oscillator (EIO) based on a pseudospark-sourced electron beam, which produced a peak output power over 38 W at W-band. The advantages of the newly developed device are: 1) transport of the electron beam by the positive-ion focusing channel without the need of an external magnetic field and 2) high interaction impedance and high gain per unit length of the EIO circuit. The experimental results agree well with the 3-D particle-in-cell simulations.
