Title: Shielded Cold Cathodes for High Power Magnetrons
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-09-C-0141
Award Amount: $99,919.00
 

Abstract:

A unique cold cathode array using rugged emitter materials and a device architecture which provides shielding from ionization impact will provide the required high current density and long lifetime for high power magnetron use. BENEFIT: Shielded cold cathodes will provide current densities scalable to over 10 A/cm2 in a scalable area. These cathodes can be used in a number of emerging micro vacuum electron devices, including magnetrons, cross field amplifiers, traveling wave tubes and backward wave oscillators. They can also be used in radiation and ion sources. Ultra-rugged emitters developed in this project will also be useful in space application, especially those in corrosive environments such as low earth orbit. )
