Paoloni, C (2005) Yield improvement via helix-pitch profile adjustment in multisection helix traveling-wave tubes. Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, 46 (5). pp. 433-435. ISSN 0895-2477Full text not available from this repository.
Yield control in multisection helix traveling-wave tubes (TWTs) is a fundamental issue in the manufacturing process. Assuming TWT small-signal gain as a design goal, yield degradation due to the helix-pitch manufacturing error is investigated in depth. The relevant contribution of the sections with lower helix pitch is studied. Oil the basis of the obtained results, indications,for defining the helix-pitch profile that provide a better compromise between yield and performance are given. (c) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
