Abstract

The design of a fundamental rectangular-to-circular coaxial cavity input coupler for a low-THz gyro-traveling wave amplifier (TWA) is presented. Theoretical and numerical approaches to the design of the coaxial cavity input coupler are introduced. The design is optimized for operation between 360-384 GHz, achieving a transmission bandwidth of 7.5% (358-386 GHz). A comment on the manufacturability of sub-mm waveguide channels is included.
