Abstract

Latest developments of a gyrotron travelling wave amplifier (gyro-TWA) with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun for operation over a bandwidth of 90-100 GHz at a high pulse repetition rate (5 kHz) are presented. Performance upgrades of the input coupler, pulsed power system and beam collector with water-cooling capability were realized for the high power wide band gyro-TWA.
