Paper Abstract

The induced resonance electron cyclotron (IREC) maser, a quasioptical Doppler-shifted cyclotron maser, uses a quasioptical resonator to eliminate the low frequency gyrotron modes, which are a problem in waveguide CARMs. The design of the NRL 20 MW, 280 GHz IREC maser features a 500 kV, 200 A, 1 psec pulse-length magnetron injection gun (MIG).
