ABSTRACT
The use of Q-switching (periodical modulation of the feedback factor) is proposed for the electron backward-wave oscillator (BWO). This can be a way to realize regimes of a stable generation of periodical short high-power rf pulses with relatively high averaged efficiency. As compared to the conventional regime of the stable generation of a BWO with no feedback, in the Q-switched BWO the averaged electronic efficiency can be increased by an order of magnitude, whereas the peak power of output rf pulses is 40-50 times higher.
