Updates on a W-band Gyro-BWO using a helically corrugated waveguide experiment


The experimental demonstration of a W-band gyrotron backward-wave oscillator (gyro-BWO) using both thermionic cusp electron gun and helically corrugated waveguide will be presented. The cusp gun is designed to generate an axis-encircling electron beam of 1.5 A at 40 kV with an adjustable velocity ratio of up to 3.0. The beam had a simulated axial velocity… (More)
