Abstract

The results of 3-fold helically corrugated waveguide microwave pulse compression experiments are presented; a 80 ns pulse having peak power of 5.5 kW was compressed into a 140 kW peak power pulse of 1.5 ns duration. To enhance the power capabilities of the microwave pulse compressor a larger diameter 5-fold helical waveguide structure was studied; the eigenwave dispersion of the 5-fold helix obtained using numerical, analytical, and experimental techniques is discussed.
