A linear theory of the excitation of electromagnetic waves in a plasma-filled corrugated-wall waveguide with an arbitrarily large sinusoidal corrugation has been derived and analyzed numerically. The theory predicts that, when driven by an electron beam, the presence of a plasma in the slow wave structure will cause an increase in the oscillation frequency, and that the temporal growth rates of a high-frequency mode approach those of the fundamental mode for high plasma densities. The latter result may account for the high-frequency modes observed in the authors' plasma-filled backward-wave oscillator
