Sprehn, Rettig, Peebles and Luhmann, of UCLA, described experiments in phase locking a 280 GHz backward-wave oscillator and a 140 GHz reflex klystron to a 35 GHz reference.
These reflex klystrons continued to occupy a significant position in the testing world, and by the mid-80s, reflex klystrons were available up into the 100s of gigahertz.
