Abstract
The final report is a record of the building, processing and testing of a single sample of the lower peak power version of the two expendable travelling wave tubes designed by Varian Canada Microwave Division. The objectives originally stated were to establish the feasibility of using glass envelope TWT technology to design and produce broadband high power travelling wave tubes at significantly lower costs than currently available metal/ceramic TWTs. The goal was to demonstrate the rf performance envelope possible for both Type 1 and Type 2 specification prototype TWTs. This was later revised to an rf test program for a Type 2 TWT only. The program was intended to establish a technical benchmark for future reference in respect of available technology. The program succeeded in rf testing a Type 2 specification glass prototype TWT.
