The modified peniotron oscillator proposed by the authors has been experimentally studied, and a reasonable electronic efficiency of 50% has been obtained. This efficiency has been enhanced to 62% by using a potential-depressed collector. This paper describes the operation characteristics of the modified peniotron and points out that the alignment of the respective axes of the tube and the magnetic circuits is very important in a peniotron tube.
