Gyrotron traveling wave amplifier (gyro-TWA) experiments based on a helically corrugated waveguide have been undertaken at Strathclyde University for the last few years. In this paper we report our latest experimental results using a longer pulse electron beam of energy 185keV and current 7.5A produced by a thermionic cathode. The coupling between the… CONTINUE READING
