Mineo, Mauro and Paoloni, Claudio (2010) Corrugated Rectangular Waveguide Tunable Backward Wave Oscillator for Terahertz Applications. IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, 57 (6). pp. 1481-1484. ISSN 0018-9383Full text not available from this repository.
A tunable backward wave oscillator (BWO) for terahertz applications is proposed. The use of a corrugated rectangular waveguide as the slow-wave structure permits relevant performance together with full compatibility with microfabrication technologies. The design, done using an analytical electromagnetic model, is fully verified by 3-D particle-in-cell simulations. A 20% tuning bandwidth is obtained at a central frequency of 1 THz, demonstrating more than 100-mW output power.
