Abstract
A new configuration of virtual cathode oscillator has been investigated by two—dimensional simulation. In this configuration, a cylindrical cavity is located between the electron beam diode and the waveguide. Simulation results have shown that the reflected electron beam drives the cavity mode, which results in the modulation of the injected electron beam. As a result, the microwave output power obtained in the waveguide is higher than that without the cavity.
