Paper Abstract

A high-peak-power 35 GHz multi-cavity phase-locked gyrotron based on a solid 1 MeV, 100 Amp, 30 nsec electron beam has been designed. The required beam transverse momentum is produced by a helical wiggler and increased to a beam pitch ratio 04.75 by magnetic field compression. The locking signal, provided by a 20 kW magnetron, drives a slotted cylindrical TE 111 prebunching cavity. The azimuthal phase bunching of the beam, is enhanced by means of a second passive bunching cavity. The TE121 output cavity, which will self-oscillate in the absence of beam prebunching, is expected to produce output powers of -10 MW and have a locking frequency bandwidth of 0.1 percent.
