Abstract

In this paper gyrotron travelling wave amplifiers (gyro-TWAs) based on helically corrugated interaction regions will be presented. Their operating principle and the first experiment in X-band will be reviewed. The present experiment in W-band using a cusp electron beam source with the capability of a high pulse repetition frequency of 2 kHz will also be presented. The design and performances of the amplifiers for kilowatt output and broadband operation in the millimeter-wave and terahertz frequency ranges will also be presented.
