Abstract
This paper reports about numerical optimization calculations on mode converters to generate high-order TEm,n modes (TE22.2 at 110 GHz, TE12,2 at 120 GHz, TE15,2 and TE10,4 at 140 GHz) in oversized circular waveguides for conversion efficiency optimization studies (cold-tests) on high-power quasi-optical gyrotron output mode transducing antennas in the millimeter wave range. Multistep TE0.1 - to - TE0.n - to - TEm,n conversion sequences using periodic radius and m-fold (corksrew-type) wall perturbations provide theoretical output mode purities around 99 % . Measured values are (97 ± 3) %.
