Acceptance Speech for John R. Pierce Award (Cont'd)
I refined the notes for the TWT course and wrote Principles of Traveling Wave Tubes which Artech published in 1994.
During the following years, I continued to teach and refine the courses. I prepared and used the books shown here
In 2011, I wrote Klystrons, Traveling Wave Tubes, Magnetrons, Crossed-Field Amplifiers, and Gyrotrons, which Artech published.
- I had long thought that I should use color figures to make it easier to explain and understand complex tube operation.
- I prepared color figure versions of the Klystron... book, the Principles of Traveling Wave Tubes book and most recently, a new book on klystrons and traveling wave tubes, which is not yet published.
- This was a major task because there are over 900 figures in the Klystron... book.
This represents the prevailing attitude among TWT people
