    The magnetically insulated transmission line oscillator (MILO) is a gigawatt-class cross-field microwave tube that requires no external magnetic field due to inherent self-magnetic insulation. The tube operates with a 500 kV, 60 kA electron beam which, along with high rf fields, poses quite a...

    High efficiency coupling of the millimeter-wave output of the dual-frequency gyrotron with the transmission line was demonstrated. The dual-frequency gyrotron was design to produce similar beam profiles for two operation frequencies (170 GHz and 137 GHz). Using two RF beam reflecting mirrors in...

    In the 74.2 GHz, 100 kW pulse (τ = 30 – 60 μs) gyrotron, influence of electron emission inhomogeneity and low-frequency oscillations (LFOs) on the quality of helical electron beams (HEBs) and on the gyrotron efficiency were investigated. Electron transverse velocity spread and...

    Selective suppression of high order axial modes of the gyrotron backward-wave oscillator (gyro-BWO) is investigated in theory and in experiment. The gyro-BWO interaction is much more efficient in a down-tapered interaction structure, while it is also more susceptible to the problem of axial mode...
