This invention relates to a high frequency gen
erating system of the type which is energized by
successive groups of charged particles moving
through space, wherein the‘groups are obtained
by de?lecting a stream of charged particles.
The object of the invention is to provide im
proved method and means for generating high
frequency `currents of highl power and for con
the open wire type or the coaxialtype. A stand
ing wav'e is the resultant of an incident travel

i ing in opposite directions over the same trans
` mission path. The conditions for .terminating>
the line so that reflected waves will result is well
known to the art, and'consis‘ts in general- of a

inner conductor of said coaxial line, two substan C: O
tially concentric annular collector rings adapted
to fit coaxially within said coaxial line, the outer
conductive toroidal shell having a substantially
annular slot therein, the outer edge olf said slot
being conductively joined to the outer conductor
cf said coaxial line, and the inner edge to the
inner conductor of said coaxial line, two substan
tially concentric annular collector rings adapted
to rlt coaxially within said coaxial line and hav
ing the outer annular collector ring conductively
joined to the inner conductor of the coaxial line,
and the inner annular collector ring conductively
joined to the outer conductor of the coaxial line,
means for directing said high Velocity charged
particles into said coaxial line and toward said
annular collector ring being conductively joined
to the inner conductor of the coaxial line, and the
inner annular collector ring being conductively
joined to the outer conducto-r of the coaxial line,
means for directing said high velocity charged
particles along said path toward said collector
rings, means for maintaining a low pressure
one end and terminated at the other end with a
region along said path, and means for coupling 40 collector rings, means for maintaining a low pres
a high-frequency load to said terminating toroidal
sure region along said path, and means for cou
pling a high-frequency load to said terminating
shell.
