A W-band gyrotron traveling wave amplifier

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

A gyrotron traveling wave amplifier (gyro-TWA) with a cusp electron gun and a helically corrugated waveguide operating in the W-band is presented. When driven by an electron beam of energy 40 keV and current 1.5 A, the amplifier is simulated to output 5-10 kW (CW) with a 3 dB frequency bandwidth of 90-100 GHz and saturated gain of 40 dB. Linear analysis, numerical simulation and experimental results will be presented.
