Abstract

This paper presents the design of a Brewster window for a W-band gyrotron travelling wave amplifier (gyro-TWA). To maintain the Gaussian-like HE11 mode from the corrugated horn, a corrugated waveguide was optimized to host the Brewster window. The Brewster window was simulated and measured to have a lower than -20 dB reflection over the frequency band 85-101 GHz.
