The theory of the steadystate operational regime of a highvoltage magnetron diode
Abstract
The determination of the parameters for a spinning Brillouin flow is discussed. A 'coaxial diode' with a longitudinal magnetic field is considered, taking into account the condition for the motion of the electrons as a balance of radial forces. This balance condition makes it possible to obtain a suitable equation for the potential within the electron layer, and equations are derived for the unambiguous determination of the relativistic Brillouin flow. For the further study of the steadystate regime, it is necessary to solve a system of three equations numerically. However, some interesting results can be obtained analytically. Formulas are presented which, under certain conditions, provide a good approximation to the correct values. The electron density throughout the layer is shown in graphs along with the variation of the potential in the cathodeanode space, and the dependence of the basic parameters on the external magnetic field. It is found that the diode geometry has a significant effect on the parameters of the steadystate electron flow.
