We propose an axially symmetrical Fabry-Perot multiple-device oscillator operating at an axially symmetrical TEM01n-mode, which has an excellent feature of uniform device-field coupling required for high efficiency power combining. By carrying out the boundary element analysis, it is shown that a plane-mirror output structure is remarkably advantageous compared with a concave-mirror output structure to obtain an adequate output coupling and to enable stable operation characteristic with respect to the axial mode number n. Experiments in X-band confirmed this excellent performance and achieved almost perfect power combining of efficiency as high as 106% and 99% for six- and eight-device case, respectively.
