Paper Abstract

Quasi-optical gyrotrons appear promising as multi-megawattt sources of cw radiation at frequencies to 300 GHz. In this paper, the theory of the quasi-optical gyrotron as well as recent experimental results are briefly reviewed, and comparisons made with conventional microwave cavity gyrotrons. The parameters of a 5 MW, 300 GHz device, based on scaling from simulations of lower power gyrotrons, are presented.
