Abstract
At M.I.T. a submillimeter gyrotron is being operated using a waveguide cavity with an iris at its output end. This experiment operated at second harmonic for 1-2 μsec pulses with a 75 kV, 10 A electron beam. Second harmonic emission has been observed at 13 frequencies from 301 GHz to 503 GHz with output powers of 1-22 kW and a 15 MHz frequency bandwidth. The highest output power was 22 kW with an efficiency of 3.5 % at 467 GHz and an output power of 15 kW with 6% efficiency was obtained at 417 Ghz. A variety of diagnostics that were used to discriminate between fundamental and second harmonic emission will be discussed.
