Abstract

Metal waveguide can be used as a dispersive medium to convert long duration, lower power pulses into short, higher peak power pulses. This provides an advanced method to generate radiation with gigawatts power in the millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength range by compressing a megawatt level long duration pulse. In this paper, a five-fold helically corrugated waveguide operating in X-band was designed and constructed. The experiments conducted show that a 5.75 kW average power microwave pulse with a 6% bandwidth and duration of 80 ns can be compressed into a 144.8 kW, 1.6 ns pulse with a power compression factor of 25.2.
