Abstract

Theoretical calculation, numerical simulation and experimental development of a W-band gyro-TWA with a helically corrugated waveguide and a cusp electron gun are presented. The cusp gun generated a 40 keV, 1.5 A axis-encircling electron beam. The maximum output of the gyro-TWA was predicted to be 5 kW with a 3 dB frequency bandwidth of 90-100 GHz and a saturated gain of 37 dB. The latest experimental results will be presented.
