Design studies towards a 4 MW 170 GHz coaxial-cavity gyrotron
Beringer, Matthias Hermann
In this work the feasibility of a 4 MW 170 GHz coaxial-cavity gyrotron for continuous wave operation is demonstrated. For the first time complete physical designs of the major gyrotron components are elaborated. In a first step, one possible new operating mode is determined, followed by the development of detailed physical designs of the major gyrotron components: Diode and triode type electron gun, coaxial cavity, two-beam quasi-optical output coupler and depressed collector.
