Compact, Pi-Mode Extraction Scheme for the Axial B-Field Recirculating Planar Magnetron

images[8]A recirculating planar magnetron (RPM), operating in the pi-mode and utilizing a compact, waveguide-based extraction scheme was simulated using ICEPIC. At an applied voltage of 300 kV and B-field of 0.140T, output power of the six-module RPM was 565 MW with 33% efficiency. The oscillator was found to operate at frequency of 2.245 GHz. Increasing the number of extracted modules in the RPM was found to result a linear increase in power at the rate of 120 MW per module.
