Autors:

Abstract: 

Features of nonlinear dynamics of backward-wave tube in the presence of such factors as energy dissipation at wave transmission, field of space charge, wave reflection at the system edges are analyzed. Dynamics of the backward-wave tube with coupled systems including multi-stability connected with possibility of beam interaction with low or fast normal wave in the coupled transmission lines is discussed. Possibility of suppression of self-modulation is considered in the backward-wave tube with an additional delay circuit, controlling the current of the electron beam in dependence on the amplitude of output signal. Besides the materials published in different years in literature, the review contains some original materials of recent researches.
