Summary Annotation A comprehensive study of microwave vacuum electronic devices and their current and future applicationsWhile both vacuum and solidstate electronics continue to evolve and provide unique solutions, emerging commercial and military applications that call for higher power and higher frequencies to accommodate massive volumes of transmitted data are the natural domain of vacuum electronics technology. Modern Microwave and MillimeterWave Power Electronics provides systems designers, engineers, and researchersespecially those with primarily solidstate trainingwith a thoroughly uptodate survey of the rich field of microwave vacuum electronic device (MVED) technology. This book familiarizes the Reffectiveness, and reliability of this entire class of devices. This comprehensive text explores a wide range of topics:Travelingwave tubes, which form the backbone of satellite and airborne communications, as well as of military electronic countermeasures systemsMicrofabricated MVEDs and advanced electron beam sourcesKlystrons, gyroamplifiers, and crossedfield devices"Virtual prototyping" of MVEDs via advanced 3D computational modelsHighPower Microwave (HPM) sourcesNextgeneration microwave structures and circuitsHow to achieve linear amplificationAdvanced materials technologies for MVEDsA Web site appendix providing a stepbystep walkthrough of a typical MVED design processConcluding with an indepth examination of emerging applications and future possibilities for MVEDs, Modern Microwave and MillimeterWave Power Electronics ensures that systems designers and engineers understand and utilize the significant potential of this mature, yet continually developing technology. SPECIAL NOTE: All of the editors royalties realized from the sale of this book will fund the future research and publication activities of graduate students in the vacuum electronics field
