Nonstationary theory of the reflex klystron oscillator based on differential equation with delay is developed. Analysis of self-excitation conditions, steady-state oscillation regimes and their stability is presented. Application of the developed theory for calculating of output characteristics of micromachined submillimetre-band reflex klystron is presented as well. Theoretical results are compared with the results of numerical simulation based on the particle-in-cell method.
