Abstract

Measurements of an upgraded W-band gyro-TWA with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun are presented. With upgraded input coupler and output systems a gain of ~37 dB was measured from the experiment with a maximum output power of over 2 kW. The amplification from the gyro-TWA was measured in the frequency range of 90 GHz to 96 GHz.
