A new monolithic structure for solid-state traveling-wave amplifiers is proposed, which promises efficient interaction between a drifting charge carrier stream and a slow electromagnetic wave component. The suggested configuration is potentially suitable for operation in the far-ir frequency regime. A one-dimensional analysis of the interaction between the electromagnetic waveguide mode and the carrier current is presented, including the loss contribution due to the nonsynchronous space harmonics of the electromagnetic mode.
