Paper Abstract

Multi-mode operation in an overmoded gyrotron experiment is compared with the predictions of a quasi-linear theory. The different regimes of strong and weak coupling of the TE111 mode to other modes are determined. The effects of transit time broadening and beam perpendicular energy change on mode competition is investigated. The start-up of oscillation is studied in both primed and unprimed conditions. Finally the theory is used to predict the degree of mode control obtained by a driving signal of given amplitude.
