The gyro-peniotron oscillator holds great promise for generating microwave radiation with efficiencies far greater than those obtainable through the electron cyclotron-maser interaction. Theoretical modeling has shown that extremely high efficiencies (>90 percent) may be possible for the gyro-peniotron. Stable operation of the gyro-peniotron oscillator requires, however, that mode competition from the electron cyclotron-maser interaction be avoided. This mode competition can be quite serious… CONTINUE READING
