Three-­dimensional simulation of virtode with toroidal cavities

The results of preliminary 3D fully electromagnetic simulation of microwave generator with virtual cathode and external feedback loop (virtode) are discussed in this paper. The feedback is realized by the velocity modulation of electron beam in the accelerating gap of electron gun with the electromagnetic signal taken with output cavity placed in the virtual cathode area.

Nonlinear dynamics of helical electron flow in the regime of the virtual cathode forming

We produce the results of computer analysis of complex dynamics of non-relativistic electron beam being placed in crossed electric and magnetic fields, in the regime of a virtual cathod forming in additional braking field. The modeling has been made in the framework of 2D numerical model in the geometry of magnetron-injector gun.

Wideband chaotic generation and optimization of characteristics in microwave generator with electronic feedback and magnetic periodic focusing system

With the help of 2D numerical model it has been investigated the nonlinear dynamics and generation of wideband chaotic signals in the generator based on electron beam with the virtual cathode. It has been discovered the strong influence of the external non-uniform magnetic field on the nonlinear dynamics of the virtual cathode in the system. It has been analyzed the physical processes responsible for the discovered dependency of dynamics of the electron beam with the virtual cathode on the parameters of the external nonuniform magnetic field.

Mathematical model and its numerical realization for the investigation and optimization of generators with electron feedback

It was stated in the paper the mathematical model and its numerical realization for the investigation of wideband chaotic oscillations and of physical processes in the electron beams with virtual cathode at the generators with electron feedback. Also it was briefly described the developed program package for the modeling of non­stationary nonlinear physical processes at the electron generators with virtual cathode and for calculating of output characteristics of devices.
