Results of numerical simulation of a miniaturized sub-THz traveling-wave tube amplifier with sheet electron beam and planar grating slow wave structure (SWS) are presented. Cold characteristics of the SWS are calculated. Small-signal and large-signal gain regimes are studied by the 1-D parametric frequency-domain code. The results are verified by simulations using 3-D particle-in-cell codes.
