Ka-band gyro-TWA waveguide severs for circularly polarized waves

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

Abstract

This paper presents the latest results from a second harmonic gyro-TWA experiment at Strathclyde University. The experiment uses a helically corrugated interaction region and operates at Ka-band. Simulations have been performed to predict the amplifier gain and bandwidth using linear theory. Amplifier stability margin can be improved with the addition of a sever. A sever has been designed and manufactured, results of simulations and measurement are shown.
