Paper Abstract

A high power, 140 GHz, cyclotron autoresonance maser (or CARM) amplifier is under development at the Plasma Fusion Center at M.I.T. Theory, simulations, and the experimental design are discussed. The experiment will employ a high voltage (450 - 700 kV) Pierce-type beam and a helical wiggler to produce the required electron beam. The initial experiment will be carried out using a 450 kV electron gun; the second phase of the experimental program will employ a 700 kV electron gun. First experimental operation is anticipated shortly. The details of the experimental design and theoretical analysis will be presented.
