The characteristics of slow wave structure employed for backward wave oscillators expected to be a high power microwave source are studied analyytically. The slow wave structure is a sinusoidally corrugated wall waveguide. The waveguide is designed and fabricated by cast aluminun. The dispersion relation and transmitted characteristics for microwaves are measured in the air. There exist literatures on high efficiency of enhanced radiation from backward wave oscillators involving plasma studied experimentally.
