A substantially revised edition of the defining book in the field, High Power Microwaves, Second Edition provides a unified, coherent presentation of the fundamentals in this rapidly changing discipline. Written from a systems perspective, it addresses the needs of both graduate students and professionals, it includes numerous worked examples and problems. This book allows readers to not only understand the underlying principles behind high power microwave sources, but also learn how to integrate sources into a system for particular applications they have in mind. Topics include HPM applications, system design, and computational techniques, crossed-field and O-type Cerenkov devices, and the relativistic Klystron family.
