  • Measurements of Some Operational Characteristics of an Amplitude-Modulated Injection-Locked UHF Magnetron Transmitter

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):4 - 10
    Cited by:  Patents (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1770 KB)

    Measurements of the loop impedance of an amplitude-modulated injection-locked uhf magnetron looking from the transmission line toward the magnetron are presented. The loop impedance is computed from the voltage standing-wave ratio and the position of the minimum-voltage plane of the injection current reflected from the magnetron output loop. While the plate voltage is varied, the changes of the lo... View full abstract»

  • An X-Band Sweep Oscillator

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):10 - 13
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2521 KB)

    A microwave sweep oscillator has been developed which sweeps the range of 8,500-9,500 mc. The RF amplitude over this band is maintained constant to within ± 0.1 db by means of a ferrite modulator unit connected in an amplitude-stabilizing feedback circuit. In addition to providing amplitude control, the ferrite unit also provides amplitude modulation at 1,000 cps of the swept cw source. The gener... View full abstract»

    A forced-aircooled power tetrode capable of delivering 1,200 watts output in television service at frequencies up to 900 mc is described. Particular features of the design include a coaxial electrode structure, novel metal-to-ceramic seals, and a unipotential matdx-type cathode having a 120-volt heater. A discussion is included of the special parts-making techniques and precision assembly methods ... View full abstract»

  • High-Power Klystrons at UHF

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):20 - 25
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3036 KB)

    A brief history of high-power cw klystron development and a classification of types of klystron are followed by a description of the three-cavity, gridless klystron amplifier with magnetic focusing, in general terms, and the Eimac 5-kw klystron for UHF-TV in more detail. This tube has cavities which are partly outside the vacuum system and contain ceramic "windows." The advantages of the klystron ... View full abstract»

  • A Floating-Drift-Tube Klystron

    This paper describes a theoretical and experimental investigation of a special form of klystron which seems to have many important uses as a frequency-modulated oscillator. Basically, it is a single-cavity, two-gap klystron with a floating drift tube between the two gaps. By applying a separate voltage to the floating drift tube it is possible to produce frequency modulation by varying the transit... View full abstract»

  • FM Distortion in Reflex Klystrons

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):32 - 36

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (820 KB)

    The harmonic distortion introduced by a reflex klystron used as a frequency-modulated transmitter is computed. The method used is to make a power-series expansion of the theoretical expression of frequency as a function of reflector voltage, and then to relate the coefficients of the power series to the harmonic-distortion components. The design of a reflex klystron for low distortion is briefly d... View full abstract»

  • Theory of the Reflex Resnatron

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):37 - 42
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1462 KB)

    A qualitative and quantitative description is given of the interaction phenomena between density-modulated groups of electrons and a field which permits them to cross the gap of a resonant cavity twice. Based on the method of Lagrangian parameters, resonance conditions of transit time and field parameters are derived for maximum energy transfer. The theory is extended to account for the specific b... View full abstract»

  • An Axial-Flow Resnatron for UHF

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):42 - 46
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2392 KB)

    A new design for a resnatron based on the axial flow of the electron stream has resulted in the development of a tube for uhf. The tube has been tested up to 29-kw cw power output at 420 mc with efficiencies from 45 to 75 per cent and power gains in excess of 10 db. The novel and general features of the mechanical design are described and the performance characteristics are given in curve and tabu... View full abstract»

    The details of techniques of measurements and the dynamic results obtained with a uhf triode are discussed.

  • UHF Triode Design in Terms of Operating Parameters and Electrode Spacings

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):51 - 58
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1996 KB)

    An approximate triode theory has been organized in terms of the operating parameters and electrode spacings so that, with the aid of graphical representations, the tube designer can readily and very quickly predict the RF performance of a grounded-grid amplifier or the effect thereon of changes in design parameters. It is thus possible to minimize the experimental work required to achieve a desire... View full abstract»

  • On Transformations of Linear Active Networks with Applications at Ultra-High Frequencies

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):59 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1522 KB)

    A relation similar to the familiar Star-Delta transformation is developed for linear active networks. Transformation formulas are derived for triode circuits under both negative-grid and positive-grid conditions. The result can be extended to tetrodes and pentodes. Applications of the analysis to vacuum tubes and circuits are given for illustration, with special considerations to uhf problems. View full abstract»

  • Tuner for Complete UHF-TV Coverage without Moving Contacts

    A tuner covering the uhf television band continuously and having essentially constant selectivity over all of this band is described. A unique feature is that the tuner employs no moving contacts in the tuned circuits, and so avoids the well-known contact troubles. The circuit consists of a double-tuned preselector, a crystal mixer, a triode oscillator, and a cascode-type first intermediate stage.... View full abstract»
