[en] The phenomenon of superradiance of electron bunches provides a promising method for generating high-power ultrashort electromagnetic pulses. In the present paper, it is shown that the equations describing the interaction between an electron beam and an electromagnetic wave in a BWO-type oscillator admit a self-similar solution that describes an amplifying and compressing pulse. It is demonstrated by numerical simulation that the generation of short superradiance pulses is of self-similar character at the initial stage of the transient process. The specific features of the main characteristics of such pulses (the amplitude and width of a pulse and the coordinates of its maximum) are investigated as a function of time and control parameters. It is shown that, after a transient process, the solution reaches the self-similar stage, where the pulse amplitude and the inverse of its squared width grow linearly with time.
