    Abstract

    This article presents the investigation of millimetre wave extended interaction oscillation (EIO) using both pencil and sheet-shaped pseudospark (PS)-sourced electron beams. A W-band (75-110 GHz) pencil beam Extended Interaction Oscillator (EIO) was designed and constructed to operate for the first experiment with the output power of 38 W achieved from a four-gap PS discharge operating at 30.5 kV. To increase the output power of the EIO, PS-sourced beam generation was further advanced with an integrated post-acceleration section and a PS sheet-beam.
