    This paper discusses the transient radiation effects on traveling-wave tubes that were subjected to three series of tests at the Sandia Pulsed Reactor Facility. Topics included herein are (1) construction and theory of test tubes, (2) instrumentation of tests, (3) variation of tube parameters during tests, and (4) possible failure mechanisms. The tubes were found to be susceptible to pulsed radiation since the gain decreased by 3 to 10 db during the radiation bursts.
