The MCVEY- The magnetron is an electrical vacuum device used to generate microwave energy. Essentially a diode is placed in a constant magnetic field. Under the control of a constant magnetic and electric field perpendicular to each other, the electrons in the tube interact with the high-frequency electromagnetic field to convert the energy obtained from the constant electric field into microwave energy, thereby achieving the purpose of generating microwave energy.
