The 140 GHz gyrotron development program

Article · October 1984with3 Reads


    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.
