A backward-wave cyclotron maser oscillator experiment conducted at Tel Aviv University is reported in this paper. The oscillator operates in the microwave regime (9.4 GHz) with a low-energy electron beam pulse (8 keV, 0.2 A, 1 ms). A frequency chirping effect observed by an heterodyne technique reveals the cyclotron resonance with a backward wave harmonic of the periodic waveguide.
