  • The first book to systematically introduce gyro-TWT theory, method and physics
  • Presents theories concisely and in a manner that is easy to follow for newcomers
  • Includes plenty of vivid figures to illuminate complicated physics
  • Developed a gyro-TWT systematically considering both the theory and engineering applications
A gyrotron traveling-wave amplifier (gyro-TWT) with the high-power and broad-band capabilities is considered as a turn-on key for next generation high-resolution radar. The book presents comprehensive theory, methods, and physics related to gyro-TWT. The most challenging problem of instability competition has been for the first time addressed in a focused and systematic way, and reported via concise states and vivid pictures. The book is likely to meet the interest of researchers and engineers in radar and microwave technology, who would like to study the gyro-TWTs and to promote its application in millimeter-wave radars.
Chao-Hai Du is a research professor, and Pu-Kun Liu is a full professor, at Peking University, Beijing, P. R. China.
