25 July 1989 The NRL/SDIO Program In Phase-Locked Gyrotron Oscillators
Author Affiliations +
In cooperation with the SDIO/IST goals of generating phase-locked microwave and millimeter-wave power at the hundreds of megawatts to gigawatt power level, a program is under way at the Naval Research Laboratory to generate such sources by enhancing the performance of gyrotron oscillators. The NRL program has emphasized the higher frequency portion of the microwave spectrum, since low frequency phase-locked sources already exist, such as SLAC klystrons. The principal experimental effort is at 35 GHz.
