Abstract

This paper presents the design and measurement of a HE11 mode multilayer window for a W-band gyro-amplifier. The window acts to seal the vacuum inside the amplifier whilst coupling out microwave power with minimal reflection and absorption. The Gaussian-like HE11 mode is used in order to achieve the lowest reflection through the window. Operating over 90-100 GHz the simulated reflection of this window is better than -30 dB. The design, simulation and microwave measurement of the window is presented.
