Design and simulation of a 0.37 THz gyro-TWA

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper reports the work being carried out to realize a gyrotron-traveling wave amplifier operating at 372 GHz based on a helically corrugated interaction region (HCIR). The high magnetic field will be provided through a cryo-free superconducting magnet. There are many components in the waveguide circuit, which must achieve very low reflection targets. The design and simulation results of the gyro-TWA, the cusp electron beam source, the sub-millimetre wave components, as well as measurement of the HCIR will be presented in this paper.
