Quarterly Report, Mar. - Jun. 1984 Varian Associates, Palo Alto, CA 10/1984; -1.


The objective of this program is to develop a gyrotron oscillator
capable of producing 100 kW of CW power at 140 GHz. Most aspects of the
conceptual design for the first experimental tube are reported and
initial calculations for several critical elements of the second
experimental tube are discussed. The specification for the
superconducting gyrotron magnet is presented. The various microwave
components, protective devices, and special diagnostics required to test
the tubes are identified and their design summarized.
